Automating Issue Comment Edited Notification

I am trying to do automation to get an email notification when an issue's comment has been edited. I would like to show the previous comment and the newly edited comment. 

I looked around and saw that this trigger has not been implemented yet but I used the multiple event trigger and saw that Issue Comment Edited is available. Is this any different?




I have been playing with it and it looks like it's working well. The only other issue is that I am unable to show the comment before it was edited. I tried using this:

{{fieldChange.field}}: {{fieldChange.fromString}}

{{fieldChange.field}}: {{fieldChange.toString}}


Unfortunately this does not work. I am using a JIRA Server.

Hi @Vanessa Marie Delfin 

First thing, I am using Jira Cloud and not Server/Data Center.

Have you tried this syntax to see if the values are available:


Kind regards,

Hi @Bill Sheboy 

Unfortunately this does not work for me. I've also tried different combinations of smart values but nothing seemed to work. 

Vanessa, I checked the Code Barrel backlog (now part of Atlassian) and didn't see this issue.  You may want to ask your site admin to submit a support ticket to confirm with Atlassian if this possible:

Once you hear back from them, please post what you learn so the community can benefit.  Thanks!
