How do you copy the last comment of an issue to a custom field in JIRA Cloud?


It seems there are various alternatives for plugins to identify the last comment on issues if you are using the Server solution for Jira. However, I can't seem to find any such plugin for the Cloud solution for Jira. Have any of you guys had any success in such a plugin for the Cloud solution?

Hello @Mikkel Lauridsen

It's possible to have last comment displayed for an issue on the Jira cloud using the "free addon - Automation Lite"

Please see the explanation here

Works like a charm, thank you!

Hello @Mikkel Lauridsen

Glad to know that it's working, please accept/ upvote the answer so that others are helped as well.

This seems to be not working now. I'm unable to find the same in Atalssian Marketplace for cloud instance.

A bit late, but to get first and last comments (and more comment related fields) as a synchronised custom field you can also use the cloud App Comment Custom Fields for Jira.

The fields build at installation and will stay in sync from then on.

Hope this helps someone.

I am trying to display the last comment in a jira filter for an epic in Confluence.  Will this add-on solve for that?



Hi Leif,

As far as I understand what you are trying to achieve, it should work. You could give it a try by starting a free trial and open a support ticket in case you run into issues.

I hope this helps.
