I am looking for help using Automation for JIRA to copy the author from the last ticket comment into a custom (user Picker) field, when a ticket is commented on.
As shown below in the screenshot. (In this instance, I manually edited the field)
The reason is, I would like to be able to setup a JQL filter, to filter the last comment author against the tickets assignee.
I have setup the custom field 'Last Commented User' customFieldId=10603
and the Automation for JIRA rule looks like this.
The rule failed error messages look like this.
Can anyone provide any advice?
F.Y.I, we are running the below (server) versions ...
JIRA Service Desk 3.16.0
Jira Software 7.13.0
Jira Core 7.13.0
Automation for Jira 7.2.3
Have you already solved this question? If not, I wondered about two things:
Thank you very much for the reply and advice.
No I have not managed to get this working yet ...
I am fairly sure I have the correct field ID, see image below.
Regarding editing the JSON, well I guess this is where I really need the help.

I have edited the JSON as below...
However I still get the same error message ...
You said in your post "set the custom user field to the last commentor".
I suppose that is where I get stuck. How do I do that?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for your help with this problem.
Using information from this post and ...
... I have been able to solve the issue.
Once again, thanks for your help :)
