history of custom field usage

I have a custom field of type Checkbox, called Flagged that can get a value impediment.

I can of course search on this flagged field, as long as the value impediment is set.
when the impediment is solved we will remove the value by unchecking this field.
meaning there is no impediment any more.

Now i want to be able to search for all issues that have had an impediment sometime in the past, is this possible?

I know i can search for status historically e.g
Project = A and status was "Acceptance testing" BEFORE '2018-03-20'

But the question is there a way to solve this for custom fields?

It is not possible for custom fields. You would need to develop your own JQL function

I realized that and will solved it in an other way, thanks for your reply 

You are most welcome!

@Tomas Gustavsson did you find a way to do that using JQL in the end ?
I am also trying to get something similar but couldn't get it to work.

Hi @TP 

If you're comfortable with using solutions from the Marketplace, there is one I'd like to suggest from my team. Consider Issue History add-on. It shows all the updates made to the selected issue list. So you will see issues, their assignees, sprints and any other column. You can filter by project, sprint, assignee, label, etc.

Let me know if it helps.
