Search for issues that is now moved into a different project.


I need to search for issues via their previous project.

e.g. AAA-1 is moved to new project as BBB-10.

I need to search for issues that is originally from AAA but is now moved in project BBB, I came accross: - Change History Searching, But could not install the plugin properly, reindex is failing.

Is it possible to search using DB? I only need the issue keys.

Thanks in Advance!

You can call the issuekey using REST API and it will return results of the new issuekey if the issue has been moved. You might want to refer

This feature using REST API is however, only available iin JIRA 5.0 and later as stated in

The JQL feature for this is not yet available but has an improvement request in

Hope this helps.

We are using 4.4.4 no good for us :(
