count reopened issues

Hi folks,


Thanks for the quick reply. Seems my comment wasn't published. sad


Here is the issue: We need to count the times an issue is Reopened or Rejected, and is transitioned to another status. We don't want to use the misc-custom-fields neither enhancer add-ons. 

Is there any other easy way different to add a hidden counter field?

If you have a status that is "Reopened" you can use the JQL status="Reopened"

Is this applicable, or do you not have a status of "Reopened"?

Hope this helps!



It depends on how you define "REOPENED" in your JIRA instance. If you have the REOPENED status, it's just a simple JQL of "Status = Reopened" or you could you use the "WAS" operation like "Status WAS Closed"

Sadly this is not an out of the box feature. There are plugins that can accomplish what you are looking for, but it isn't a quick fix with vanilla JIRA.
