Retrieve previous issue number after moving issue between projects


When I move an issue between projects (eg. Project A --> Project B), Jira reassigns a new issue id, based on the new project's issue numbering. 

eg. A-1234 --> B-11

Jira redirects the user automatically when you search using the old issue id. I would like to know if there is a way to retrieve all the issue IDs that my issue had between projects. I would like to see in my scenario:

"A-1234, B-11" or only "A-1234"

Thank you in advance for your suggestions

Hi Dimitris,

remembering from some earlier requirements it should still be possible to get the Key into a Scripted Field (this, though, would require an App called Script Runner) so at least you can display the former key in a custom field.

Needed code seems to have changed several times over the years but probably a start.

That means, like Jack, already said - you are restricted to how Jira works but could report the issue key in a custom field.

This cannot be achieved. The issue will be relabeled to be the latest issue number in the new project.
