How to search a ticket "commented by" a user

I want to search tickets using a filter that response all the tickets that were commented (or could be transitions made by) by a user (different than currentuser)

Does anyone can help me. Thanks.

Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment out of the box.

You could use an App on the Marketplace to have that feature :

  • Comment Toolbox for Jira which adds some JQL functions to search comments made by a user (or a group as well)
  • ScriptRunner for Jira which adds a lot of functionnalities such as commented() to search the attributes of comments such as By. It adds so much more than just that though... have a look at it!

I've also see users who use the Activity Stream Gadget with a global filter set on a specific user. This is useful to see the public profile of a user if you are not an administrator. However, you could not execute a search based on the Activity Stream.

I hope that answers your question!

Cheers :)

I need this too.

Hi @Diego Amanto,

As mentioned by Julien , you need some plugins to support this function.Try the following free plugin for extended queries.

JQL : userCommentedIssues(User, Duration)

Thank you! I´ll try it and tell you how it works!
