Hi Andrian,

This requirement can be used using the Script Fields functionality provided by the ScriptRunner Plugin.

The way to do this is to set a new Script Field called Last Comment Added and configure its searcher type to be Date Time Range Picker and ensure this field is set to appear on issues for all projects and issue types.

You should then add the script below to the Script Field

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def comments = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()?.getComments(issue)

// If the current Issue has comments then get the date that the last comment was created

if (comments) {
    return comments.last()?.created as Date
}

Finally you should then ensure that the Template for the field is set to Date Time Picker like in the screenshot below and then you will see details of when the latest comment was added such as in the screenshot below.
