We need to generate report contains all the field values , change history and all the comments automatically after closing the issue. Could you please inform us how can we generate this report automatically ?
There's an obvious answer here - look at the issue you've just closed. The issue view contains all of that.
The question here is really what do you mean by "generate report"? What are you expecting to get out of Jira? (Yes, "all the data for the issue", but where? How?)
Ok, that's a perfect response to my question :-)
This is going to need some coding. My instinct would be to do it via email and put the code in a "post function" add-on which you can simply add to the "close" transition. I guess you could fire some form of "export to local machine", but you're then talking about users understanding the popups you'd get and remembering to save it all.
You'll have a bit of work to do on PDF or Excel I'm afraid.
There's a lot of coding to be done here, I think you need to find a developer.
Before you do, I'd also rummage through the marketplace for plugins that might help you. I've not spotted one, although I'd take a look at JETI and possibly the script-runner
The bit around "write a post-function which sends email" isn't that hard (start at https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Creating+Workflow+ExtensionsOR use the script runner plugin), but getting "all the jira data and formatting it into a file to send as an email" could be quite complex, and probably needs someone who knows a bit about converting dynamic and fluid data into excel/pdf.
