Using REST API is it possible to create an item with correct changelog history?


On Jira Cloud using REST API is it possible to create an issue with correct changelog history?


Welcome to the Atlassian developer community @DiogoRibeiro,

I don’t follow your question. When you say, “create an item”, do you mean create an issue? API clients cannot directly write to the changelog so what would make them “correct”? Can you tell us more about what you are trying to accomplish?

Thanks @ibuchanan !

Sorry for not being clear. Yes I want to create an issue (fixed) and being able to set specific dates for status transitions. Is that possible in any way??

I want to create some epics with status transitions dates in the past - the correct changelog history part.


Thanks for clarification.

No. It is not possible to change issue history, neither through UI nor API.

Thanks a lot @ibuchanan :pray:
