How to capture Rework in Jira?

We want to capture how many times rework has happened for a particular defect.

For this purpose we have added one field called Rework. when ever state transition happens from Resolved to Open we set rework count 1 Rework custom field and this count is incremental.How many times this state transition happens that many times rework will increase.

Also we want to capture the Date stamp when this rework happen?

Could you pl help me how to get these things done?

Thanks in advance.

Add reqork count as a numeric custom field and use the increase value of field post function in JIRA Misc Workflow Extensions plugin.

This will increase the "Rework" count.

The date will be captured in the change history and you can query on that.

hi Jabin, I am not getting this post function in workflow desinger.

Increase value of field Function

Any other clue how to get this increment.


Have you installed the plugin? Are all modules enabled in the plugin?

There was some issue. i reinstalled same plug in once again now i can see these values. Thanks Once Again Jobin.

I want to calculate the time spent for the rework. how can i do that?
