How to display the last change in a particular issue field in the gadget?

If you need to configure the representation of the latest change in status, priority, task type, comment, or other field, this short guide will be helpful for you.

An example of statusanother field displaying is described below.(The logic of displaying the other fields does not change).

To see when the issue has been moved to the current status, you need to create a custom field and set up an appropriate rule in Jira Automation. Follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to the Project settings.

2. Tap on the “Issue Types” option.

3. Choose a necessary Issue Type for which you want to apply automation.

4. Create a Time stamp by tapping on a “Time stamp”.

5. Enter the field name as it’s shown on a screen below and click a “Save changes” button.

6. The field that you have created for a current issue type (Bug on a screen) should be added for other issue types where the same automation should be applied.

7. In the search field displayed on a screen find a field that you have created in the step 5. Click on it to choose.

8. Move to another issue type (Story on a screen below).

6-8 steps should be done for each issue type you need to apply the automation for.

9. Then click “Project settings”.

10. Click “Back to project”.

11. Then click Project settings again.

12. Go to the Jira “Automation”.

13. Then create a rule for automation by tapping the “Create rule” button.

14. Choose Field value changed as a trigger

Select Status as a field to monitor changes;

Change the type: Any changes to the field value

And click “Save” button.

15. Click the “New action” option to add a new component.

16. Choose “Edit issue” as a new action to update necessary issue fields.


17. Type the field name in a given field and put a tick near the necessary one.

18. Write the necessary time of changes (as it’s shown below) and click “Save” button.

19. Add the dynamic parameter of a date {{now}} and click the “Turn on” button.

20. Click the “Create” button to create an issue.


21. Fill in the necessary fields and click “Save”.

22. Click “View issue” in the bottom left corner.
