JQL to find the assignee during a specific transition?

We are trying to determine who the the developer that did the work on this specific issue
  1. Issue starts assigned to Amy with status of New
  2. issue progresses to Open with the assignee of Belinda
  3. Belinda progresses issue to In Progress (Assignee remains Belinda)
  4. Belinda finishes her work and assigns to Candice for QA

I want a query for "list all issues that progressed from Open to In Progress during this time period"

here's the trick: I need to know who was the assignee during that progression (in this case, it was Belinda... I don't need to know about Amy or Candice)

Or, is there another approach that I am missing?


Thank you for your assistance

To find issues with a specific status change in a time period, you can do JQL like:

status changed FROM "Open" to "In Progress" DURING ("2016/11/12 14:00","2016/11/16 14:00")

You can also query based on who made this change, but I don't think that is quite what you are asking:

status changed FROM "Open" to "In Progress" by Belinda DURING ("2016/11/12 14:00","2016/11/16 14:00")

Might get you started at least.


p.s. I'm assuming you are wanting to look at many issues, so it's impractical just to look at the "History" or "Activity" tabs on the issue(s)?

correct.  we have some 3000 issues a week, and trying to run reports to capture data about the production.  I believe the "by belinda" method above might get me a lot closer - much appreciated!
