Reporting on workflow transitions

In our Jira implementation we work with a self made workflow.

I see Jira collects the time between each transition, who excuted the transition, the number of times a transition was executed and so on.

I want to make reports on this information, but i don't find this information.

Conclusion: The information I need is not readily available. I need scripting en custom fields to fullfill my needs.


Which JIRA version that you are running on? Starting JIRA 4.4 onwards, there is a new feature where it provides a visual representation of your workflow. See this - .

Do you think this is something that you are looking at?



No what I am looking at is:

Jira collects and displays transition data (I try to attach a screenshot but don't have enough credits):

  1. the time between each transition
  2. who excuted the transition
  3. the number of times a transition was executed
  4. ...

I try to use this information in a report but I don't find the information anywhere.



Hi Bart,

I am in the same boat as you, looking for a report for transition times to evaluate the time taken for each transition. If you found an answer already, please share.

Just answered a similar question here. You can create custom fields as per your requirements and script it to return the right data.
