Capture most recent comments on issue - entered during a transition - send email

I am trying to write a script to pull out the last comment (if there was one) during a transition - then use that to fire a custom email.  

I see in the Adaptavist Script Runner - send custom email - documentation that I should use:

issue.fields.comment.comments | last | field("body")

Just because they say I can use it does not mean I have the skills to actually use it. (brand new to coding)  

I am trying to make this (the presence of a last comment during a transition) my conditional.  So if the field is populated then send email. 

issue.fields.comment.comments.last.field.body != null      Does not work

Um can you help the new guy out?

Hi @Robb F Watkins 

You need to use the built "send custom email" postfunction. In the Email template box you have to put something like this:

Greetings &{issue.reporter?.displayName},

<% if (lastComment)
out << lastComment



Thanks for the feed back.  I will test first thing Monday morning.
