Automation on last comment

Hi team,

I activated the following automation:

1. If comment ~ This can be closed

2. Then transition to DONE


What I need is to change the 'comment' to 'last comment'. The reason is that if the ticket reopens at a later stage, then the automation reads the comment again and closes it again.


Thank you in advance.

Hi @Giorgos Savva 

You can access the last comment using {{issue.comments.last}}


Thanks Ravi! It works also. Maybe it is a bit safer this way!

Hi Giorgos,

happy to help, but i'd need more intel here ;-).

Are you using Server/Data Center or Cloud?

Is your question about the integrated service desk automations or project automations provided by automation for jira app?


Hi David. I am sing Jira Cloud and project automations.
