We are performing an investigation of a project and we needed the list of tickets whose "description" are updated more than once or post-creation.
it would be fine for us if the jql can fetch all the description field's update activity performed on any and all tickets from its history for a project.
It would be fine if we could search all the activities of a user where he has updated the description of any ticket on a project. (We can refer to the date of activity for our ref.)
We are trying to see the revisions of the requirement that was made on a project.
pls suggest, TIA.
Hi @Dhanush KJ
JQL doesn't work with history searches for the description filed. However, you can try some workarounds.
1. Activity Stream Gadget on the Jira dashboard. Here, you can choose a project, dates, or assignee, but the activity is limited. There is only an option to filter by Issue edited, not description edited.
2. Issue History for Jira app developed by my team can help with all options:
+ You can revert changes made to the description
Try how it works for you.
This helps to back Track.
Going with #2. Came across another Free App Extension that serves the required purpose in a similar way.
Will be exploring the same and keep you posted on the Updates / Findings.
I don't think you can do this in JQL. Although there is a CHANGED operator, it doesn't work with the Description field.
Agreed, Found out the hard way ;)
The Description seems to be a major change Placeholder across Jira.
@Daniel Turczanski - __JQL Search Extensions - Its good to have the Updatedby() Function enabled for the Description Field as well as the Changes Tracking is something used across Jira by Major Leading Users. Pls help to highlight to right Stakes if it could help. Thank you.
