Jira issue date last edited

I would like to be able to search by the date an issue was actually last edited.

The 'last updated' field includes when it was assigned to another user, but an issue may get reassigned without the details of the issue actually being updated or any comments added. So I'd like to search by last commented/edited ignoring when it was updated.

Is this possible? (I have seen the "Jira Enhancer plugin" but that's not an option at the moment, I was wondering if there's another way)

Hi Badger ,

I use JIRA 5.1.6 and with the below JQL i can find issues which were updated and assignee were not changed i.e the issues were commented/edited

updatedDate < startOfDay() AND NOT assignee changed

Thanks, but that only gives me issues where the assignee has never changed. My issues may have changed assignee multiple times, I just want to be able to search by the date it was acutlly edited.
