I am trying to get some data from Jira, but can't understand the different as mentioned in Question above.
Example of query:
created >= 2021-01-01 AND created <= 2022-02-22 and watcher in ("userA", "userB", "userC")
created >= 2021-01-01 AND created <= 2022-02-22 AND issue in commentedByUser("userA", "userB", "userC")
Welcome to the Atlassian Community!
A watcher does not have to have made a comment to be a watcher, and a commenter does not have to be a watcher
The two searches are looking for people for different reasons.
Yes, it really is just the comment's existence. Other actions don't make you a commenter!
If you have someone who has been assigned to the issue, edited it and transitioned it, but not made a comment (either by hitting comment or by adding one while editing/assigning/transitioning etc), then they will not be counted as a commenter.
You have to report on the various different actions differently, and there's no record of just "updated". You can look for individuals "was updated by (Bob Smith)" for example.
But yes, all record of change is stamped with the author and that is indeed all logged in the issue history.
