How do I search for comments by a specific user?

In cloud JIRA I like to see what tickets were updated by "joe" in last 24 hours. 

You would think that this is something that is available out of the box, or am I missing something?

 

 

thanks

try a JQL Issue search something like:   

status changed by "Username" and updated> startOfDay("-1")

In this case startOfday would be today and this is looking at the users updates from yesterday (the -1).

If you're not sure of the person's username, find it in their profile or if you have admin access, look at their user info through the admin users screens.

I am looking for any update. Not just status change. In particular I am looking for users who put a comment in the ticket but do not change anything about the ticket so I hard time to find out through Status or Assignee change. 

How do I find out tickets were a comment was added in the last 24 hours?

If you want to find issues where a comment was added by a user, you need a plugin like JQL Tricks. It cannot be done by the default search functionality.

thanks.

Sad that Atlassian does not support such basic use case. For us who use Cloud instance and do not even have the option to use add-ons.
