An issue's change history is a record of changes made to an issue, including:

  • creator of the issue (this may be the same as the reporter, but can be distinct)
  • changes to an issue field
  • attachment of a file
  • deletion of a comment
  • deletion of a worklog
  • creation or deletion of an issue link

For each change, the following is recorded:

  • the person who made the change
  • the time at which the change was made
  • if an issue field was changed, the new and old values of the field

To view an issue's change history,

  1. Open the relevant issue in JIRA.
  2. Open the History tab in the Activity section.
  3. The list of changes to the issue will display, similar to the screen shot below.
