count fixversion changes

Hi I would like to search for issues that had their fixVersion field changed although I want to exclude any issues that had initially an empty fixVersion field.


For example:

In my project I have two versions/release



If I create a issue and assign fixVersion = Version_1_00 and then over the course I change it to Version_1_01.

I want this issue to be listed.

However this issue should not be displayed if fixVersion stayed at the initial Version_1_00 and issue was closed (Resolved).

If I understood your question correctly, you want display issues with following criteria:

- Display issues that currently have Version_1_01 and were having Version_1_00 since creation (weren't empty after creation) and don't display issues that stayed at Version_1_00 and are closed.

If this is correct, the following JQL should satisfy your requirements:

fixVersion=Version_1_01 and  fixVersion was Version_1_00 and fixVersion was not EMPTY 

Please let us know if this is okay for you.


Thank you, Mark. Yes, that is one way for sure.

I also ended up creating a scripted (Adaptivist) field that counts the number of FixVersion.

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

ComponentAccessor.changeHistoryManager?.getChangeItemsForField(issue, "Fix Version").size() as Double

Meant to say number of FixVersion changes..
