Display who the last comment (public and internal) was from

Hi there!

We want to show our agents who the last comment was from. The workflow currently looks like this:
Bildschirmfoto 2021-06-09 um 09.20.40.png

Both edits work (as in the automation does not fail), but only the first field "Last Comment" is populated. What do we need to do populate "Last comment from" with the author of the comment?


Cheers for your help,

Hi @Felix Hüsken , welcome to the Community!

You can use a smart value of {{issue.comments.last.body}} to show the last commend added, and then {{}} to display the name of the user who left this last comment.

Hope this helps!

Thanks a lot Callum!

{{}} unfortunately produces an error for both public and internal comments: (Specify a valid value for customfield_10193 (customfield_10193))


Do you have an idea why?

@Felix Hüsken So that means that either the smart value isn't returning any value and the Edit issues action is failing, or the value returned somehow isn't being set.

What is the field type of customfield_10193? E.g. text field, user picker etc?

@Callum Carlile _Automation Consultants_ Cheers! It's a user picker (single user):

@Felix Hüsken Ahh okay, for setting the user picker field try using the smart value of {{}} - the user picker fields act slightly differently to text fields.
