How to fetch comment visibility in Scriptrunner?

In Scriptrunner, I am trying to create a Scripted Field for a Jira Service Management project.

The field will be fetching the date of the last public comment that was made by a user who is a member of a specific group.

Basically, I want to check if that comment is public or internal but I cannot get this information from the comment (com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentImpl)

I found this article by Adaptavist but I cannot adjust it in my script:

Any help on how to get the comment visibility and adjust it to the script below will be much appreciated:


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.commentManager

def comments = commentManager.getComments(issue).reverse()

def lastCommentDate = null

def groupX = ComponentAccessor.groupManager.getGroup("group-x")

for (comment in comments){

    def author = comment.authorApplicationUser.username


    // Here, I want to check if the comment is public or internal

    if (ComponentAccessor.groupManager.getUserNamesInGroup(groupX).contains(author)) {

        lastCommentDate = comment.updated





    return lastCommentDate

There are some references in the scriptrunner documentation pages and the Adaptavist library for that:


In short, you need to look at the properties of the comment:

def commentPropertyService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(CommentPropertyService)
final def
SD_PUBLIC_COMMENT = "sd.public.comment"

def isInternal = { Comment c ->
def commentProperty = commentPropertyService.getProperty(user,, SD_PUBLIC_COMMENT)
if (commentProperty) {
def props = new JsonSlurper().parseText(commentProperty.getValue())
} else {

Thanks, Peter, I had to adjust it a bit by following the first article you've shared and it worked.
