History comment can be added via REST API by sending: 

PUT /wiki/rest/api/content/{content_id}

{
"id": "content_id",
"title": "Page title",
"space": {"key": "SPACEKEY"},
"type": "page",
"body": {
"storage": {
"value": "Page body",
"representation": "storage"
}
},
"version": {
"message": "version comment",
"number": 2
}
}

 Or on the UI when saving the page

Once a version comment has been saved, it is not possible to change anymore.

I cannot see this function?

Yes. I am also unable to view this feature. 

also cannot find it 

ability to write comment when saving a page seems to have disappeared, anyone know how to get it back?

Also looking for UI comment feature and can't find it!

The comments feature in version control has been removed in the new editor.

If you want it back, please vote here:
https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-65695

How to show it in the GUI? Or what kind of pages would have that "What did you change?" box enabled in GUI?

Also looking for this functionality!

 Me too!  where did it go?

Seems like it is only in Old editor but not in a new one.

Do you now when a new release will have the fix so that we can add the comment when publishing a new version ? Having history without the comment is hard to use ! HELP !

Can we please add this back on? its so terrible navigating through all the changes

Hi,

Is there any way to enforce filling comment whenever we want to update a page version?

This will prevent the need for adding comments for previous versions of a page

I would like to bump this.

Hi, 

is there a possibility to update a page with REST to generate a new version while keeping the whole page content.

I’ve noticed that no new version is created unless the title or content changes.
I want to create a new page version triggered by the click on a checkbox, but keep the complete content. I just want to set a version message.

On the UI, when saving the page, this is possible.

Cheers,
Fabian
