Query issue history

Hi, is it possible to query issue history?

"changed" and "was" JQL functions don't work for custom fields, like dates. Is there a way to get to that data?

Use case:

We want to see all stories with a changed ship date. This is for Product and management, as dates can change for many reasons. If anyone else has creative ways to answer this, that'd be appreciated.

I was als trying to query for story tickets that were in previous sprints?

The SQL for JIRA plugin supports it. Please, notice that it is capable of combining SQL and JQL:


     i.key, c.created, c.toValue
     issues i
left join
     issuechanges c on c.issueid = i.id
     i.jql = 'type = Story'
     and c.field = 'Sprint' 
     and c.fromvalue = 'Some Sprint'

In the query above, issues are filtered by using the jql = 'type = Story'. Once all the stories have been fetched, they are filtered by having a 'Sprint' type filed in the change story and having a initial Sprint value = 'Some Sprint'

It would return the issue key and the date of the change as well as the new Sprint value.
