The issue history gets confusing after many changes, so it would be great to have a function "Changes only", where you won't see the whole history, but the changes only.
Is there a functionality for that in JIRA? Or a plugin?
We are using JIRA 5.2.6 right now.
The thing is that our product owners don't write one-sentence-user stories, but many lines of description. So if they change some single word, the whole text is displayed in the history.
But I see your input... I guess I'll mark this answered.
The history is, quite simply, a list of changes to the issue.
I don't think you're making a mistake in what you're asking for here - you want to see less of the changes that go into the history. But there's no rule to tell us what parts you do want to see?
What do you mean by changes? Any editing of a field, addition of a comment, or reassignment is a change. Do you mean changes from the last time YOU looked at it? If so that would be difficult to implement and would probably entail using cookies which means if you logon from another machine or your company has the browser set to delete cookies and temp files when closed for security reasons it wouldn't work if you close the browser.
