Special report request

Hi All,

one of the project leads need a report about a user. He needs all the issue the user had worked on - it means the issues that were resolved by this particular user.

How can it be done?

So filtering the issues which a user has set to resolved.

Thanks for your suggestions nad help!

Hi Rumi,

if you have a special status for resolved issues you can use

status WAS "Resolved" BY rumi

if your status has another name, you have to use this name of course



Hi THomas,

where do I put this script?

Thank you!

Do something like this:

Status changed to "Closed" by jobin

You can even add a time period using AFTER, DURING options.

It is in the issue navigator. Go to Advanced searching.


Hi Jobin,

let me know where do I put this code? It cannot be run in Issue Navigator.

Hi Jobin,

this is why I asked: I use advanced searching but it's not a correct select. I useJira version 4.3.4

Are you talking about a different version?


Ah I see. Thos eoperators are not available in 4.3 I guess. WAS, CHANGED etc are introduced only in 4.4 I guess. You can check in the respective documentation for the above page.

Trust me, this won't be a one time request. the JIRA Utilities plugin add a partcipants field that captures every user that updates an issue in any way. However, it will only capture from the date of install forward. We also capture the user who executed milestone transitions such as development complete, testing complete, resolved/closed, and reopen. Since we only allow the current assignee to execute transitions we can easily use a post function to copy the assignee field to the tracking field. Between the participant field and the milestone fields it is very easy to capture information about who worked on an issue or who performed important transitions and display it in a filter.

Do you have enough database space to copy your jira database and then upgrade to a later release so you can run Jobin's or Thomas-S' query? You can use a development license and then you can remove this copied system. Maybe your managers would be willing to upgrade since it has a feature they are looking for?

Do you have access to the Jira database so you can run an sql query?

It is should be a join between jiraissue and os_historystep. I do not know your workflow so, I cannot give you the exact query.
