Status Entry Date Custom Fields

Server Cloud

This page is about the Enhancer Plugin for Jira Server. Using Jira Cloud? Then please click on the Cloud button above.

You can create a generic date custom field to hold the status change date. This field is a calculated (read-only) custom field.

To create a Status Entry Date Custom Field

  • Navigate to Jira Admin > Manage Apps > Enhancer Plugin For Jira Menu > Custom Fields (JEP).
  • Click on the  button.
  • Click on the Date tab on the left-hand side of the dialogue. 
  • Select Status Entry Date, then click Add custom field.

  • Fill in the dialog box:

    • Create a name for the custom field.
    • Select Status to hold the date of when the issue changed to this status. After 5.36.0 version, you can select multiple statuses.
    • Specify First or Last - whether the issue can re-visit this status (e.g. the issue can be reopened and then changed to the Under Review status again).

  • If you choose Last in First or Last, you can also decide whether the custom field will skip self-transitions in its calculation. The dialog box would appear as the following:


  • And then click on the Save Custom Field button. That's it.

This custom field can be used to sort or search in issue navigator.
