First/Last Field Change User Custom Field

This page is about JEP Cloud. Using Jira On-Prem? Click the On-Prem button above.

The First/Last Field Change User Custom Field shows the first or last user that changed a field in the issue.

To create a First/Last Field Change User Custom Field, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Apps > Enhancer Plugin for Jira > Custom Field Configuration.

  2. Click the Add New JEP Custom Field button.

  3. Click the User/Group tab on the left-hand side of the dialogue. 

  4. Select Field Change User, then click Add custom field.

  5. Fill in the dialog box: 

    • Create a name for the custom field.

    • Select the Field(s) that you would like to calculate the first/last field change user on.

    • Specify First or Last – if First is selected, the custom field will show the first user that changed a field. If Last is selected, then the last field change user will be shown.

  6. Click the Save custom field button to create the custom field. The custom field will now appear in the issue view:

Once created, the First/Last Field Change User Custom Field can be used for sorting and searching in the issue navigator, allowing you to filter and find issues based on the user who initiated their status transitions.

Remember to add this custom field to the appropriate screens so that it can be visible and accessible when working with issues. If you don’t know how, check out the Jira documentation.

It's important to note that for new or updated issues after creating this custom field, the custom field values will automatically update correctly. However, for existing issues, it's necessary to regenerate the issue in order to see the correct values associated with the First/Last Resolved User Custom Field.
