Get all comments of multiple issues by rest

Is there a way to get all the comments of many issues. In the Cloud via REST.
So the comments themselves and the number of comments.

I know it works with JQL and JIRA expressions. But there are some tradeoffs there:
- We might get blocked if there are too many requests (
- Maximum 10 or 100 issues per request (Very slow by many issues)

Has anyone any experience with this?
Is there another API available?

Thank you very much!

Hi @Steffen Stamprath I don't think it is possible. THe only documentation for comments REST API is

So you can get comments for ONE issue or for MANY IDs.

When I get the comments by the search api, why I should call the comment-list api? I already have then my comments.

Yeah, you are right. I just woke up when I was replying, sorry :)
