jql query for number of times reassigned

Does anyone know if it is possible to use JQL to find out how many times an issue has been reassigned?

Hi VegasMick,

JQL doesn't have the ability to "count" anything - you would have to grab that kind of data from the JIRA database.

You can specify a past assignee in JQL, which will show you if an issue was assigned to a particular user at some point:

assignee was "username" and issueKey is XXX-YYYY.


Thanks Simon,

This would give me some of the information I am seeking, but it's not practical to implement. I appreciate the suggestion though.

I'll chalk this up as "currently not possible" using JQL.

I think there might be some plugins which do this sort of thing, but I can't justify the cost for this one purpose though.

Cheers, Mick
