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

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. Click the 'History' tab in the 'Activity' section.
  3. The list of changes to the issue will display, similar to the screenshot below.
