You should be able to pass 'author' JSON property when adding/updating comment. Please check the doc:

Leaving it empty defaults to REST API user.

Please check the comments.

It respond me this error 

Can not deserialize instance of

and im adding this array to json 



$res_c = array(array('author'=>array("name"=>"fred","displayName"=>"Fred F.User","active"=> false),'body'=>'mmyyyyyyyyyy'));

The author REST piece should be in form:

"author": {
  "name": "fred"
This is json format im setting in api call still no success :(
{"author":{"name":"fred"},"body":"lots of testing"}

No success in terms that the author is not changed or there is an error?

No author change . Comments are added with the name of admin.

No luck sad. So it's hard-coded to put current REST user and author is ignored despite it's in the docs. I knew that there is such hard-code for REST worklogs now we booth know that the same is for comments.

There is no such field or role as commentator in JIRA. Please adjust your question by explaining what you have and what do you want to do.

Basically i have list of issues with comments that i imported from basecamp in json format . Now i want to create issue with comments in JIRA with API. The problem is that  i have different people's comments on issue while JIRA is only showing comments with name of Administrator  . So how could i change the name of commentator via api?
