Unsaved comment

I bet it's very simple but it's not obvious in the GUI.

How can you show an 'unsaved comment' and save it?

Hello Ivo,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

Usually, an unsaved comment shows when clicking on the comment box. It doesn't show a message that there is an unsaved comment, but when clicking to add a comment, it will show the comment that wasn't saved.

If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.


Yes, it does show as unsaved:

I spent a lot of time trying to restore my comment. Eventually I was able to find this site but I searched many combinations of 'unsaved comment' in the help section of Jira because I thought it was user error on my part.


At least update your help page to explain that this is bug if it has been a known issue for two years.

Glad you were able to restore it. I could never get to that point.

Just one of the reasons I'm not a fan of Jira.
