Scripted field to get "last updated by" not getting updated for comments added

achoudhary February 12, 2023

I have a script to fetch "last updated by" but it doesn't work for comments. Can you help me with the piece of code needs to be added here.


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.user.ApplicationUser

def changeHistoryManager = ComponentAccessor.changeHistoryManager
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.userManager

def changes = changeHistoryManager.getAllChangeItems(issue)

def userKey = changes.sort(false).last().userKey
def user = userManager.getUserByKey(userKey)

def name = user.displayName
return user;

Comments do not go into the history, so you're not able to read them with the changeHistoryManager.

You'll need to use commentManager to find the latest comment on the issue, and then compare it with date you find in the change history to work out which of the last update and last comment is the later one!
