For each ticket, I need to know how many times this one status get updated, i.e. how many times status "In Progress" is set to. What is the best way to achieve this function?

Hi Gil,

if you are looking for programatically,

Here I have made stuff for assignee field from history.You can use status instead of assignee, Here you need to iterate each issue and find out the number of count.

ChangeHistoryManager changeHistoryManager = ComponentAccessor.getChangeHistoryManager();

List<ChangeItemBean> changeItemBeans= changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField(issue, "assignee");

for(ChangeItemBean changeItemBean:changeItemBeans)

// do stuff

or you can use JQL

(status changed from Open to "In Progress" )

and find out the number of issue count.


Hi Gil,

In JIRA Enhancer Plugin there are built in counter fileds.

You can define and set your own counters as well.
