Custom field created as Version Picker - SQL Query in database


I have created a custom field (for eg. Release) of type single version picker.

I have created many issues and set this field. Now, I want to search for all JIRA issues for a particular release. Since, I am writing reports in BIRT, I need an SQL query.

I am able to fetch the values for all other custom values, but not for this field. (I have created 3 more fields of type version picker.)

Could you please provide me help on this? May be a sample SQL query or the table which will hold the link to the jiraissue and the value of the release custom field.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Hi Ankit,

I'm hoping you found the solution to what you were looking for, but as I've just had to do the same thing (in case it helps someone else) this is how the data is stored in the database:


select distinct(, cfv.numbervalue, pv.vname
from projectversion pv,
customfieldvalue cfv
where cfv.customfield = 15001
and = cfv.numbervalue;

where 15001 is the ID of the custom field you're interested in.

Values for individual issues are stored in the CUSTOMFIELDVALUE table and the lookup for the Version name is in the PROJECTVERSION table.


If you need to access to JIRA data via SQL integrated with Birt, then you might want to have a look at this add-on: Birt Reports for JIRA.
