Query to track the story points changes on the Stories JIRA

All the scrum teams constantly refine their stories, split them, and estimate them in sprint refinement or planning session, as a result the story points change. Can I write a query that returns me a list of all the issues in JIRA whose Story Points field has been changed between two dates ?

Any guidance will be much appreciated. Thanks !

Hi Sofy,

The problem with JQL queries is that you can only search for issues based on the current state, but you can not compare field states (like story points) over time. I had to implement a similar case in my company where we wanted to track which billing keys had changed over time. This is what I did to fix this:

1) Add a custom field to all issues/projects/... that need to be tracked.

2) Implement a custom event listener that looks for changes and updates the custom field (f.e. setting a flag) on all issues/projects from which the story points have changed.

3) Use JQL to query for all issues/projects that have the custom field flag set to get an overview of all issues/projects that have changed storypoints

4) If you use a Checkbox List custom field you can always unflag the custom field after the information has been processed/viewed by the responsible person.

Hope this explanation makes sense?!
