how to track assignee every time an issue is moved to "in progress"?

Project owner wants to record who the assignee is when ever an issue goes to "in progress". How can I record this information?

You can extract it from the history, but I don't think you can actually do much with storing it explicitly.

If you created a field for "assignee when moved to in progress", then you could use a bit of scripting or a "copy field value" post-function from one of the common add-ons to copy the data on that transition, but that's only going to work for the last time the transition ran.  There's no support for a field that could hold multiple copies if the transition runs many times, the best you could do would be appending to a text field (but then you're into scripting, and if you have script add-ons, you might as well script "read the history")
