how to add 'Updated By' field in JIRA using single user picker?

Hello All,

I want to create a 'Updated By' custom field by using Single user picker so that i can see the name of the last person who updated the ticket. Is it possible to do it?


Thanks in advance for the help.

Adding a field is easy, just add a custom field.

Populating it is going to need scripting or code.  If you do it as a simple custom field, you'll need to find or write a listener to pick up any changes made to the issue and update the field.  I'd be tempted to do it more as a scripted field that picks the author out of the last line of the history on each change.
