Issue details at the moment of creation

How can I using Jira API obtain details with which the issue has been initially created? i.e. I want to know what was the assignee field value at the time of the issue creation. Is that possible?

Hi @SergeyIzvekov ,

The GET /rest/api/3/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/changelog end point allows you to see the changes made to an issue.

To see who the first assignee was, you could loop through the array of changes and look for any change of the field assignee. If there are no changes found then the the current assignee would be the original.
