Hi @Mallikarjuna 

You can use this JQL 

project = Demo AND (comment ~ "any*" OR comment !~ "any*")

This will bring issues in the demo project which has comments.

Thank you.

Hi @Mallikarjuna

I trust that @Jerrold - Empyra's answer helped finding the relevant issues!

Just for future reference, if you're looking for more advanced comment-related searches, you may want to have a look at the app that my team and I are working on, JXL for Jira.

JXL is a full-fledged spreadsheet/table view for your issues that allows viewing, inline-editing, sorting, and filtering by all your issue fields, much like you’d do in e.g. Excel or Google Sheets. It also comes with a number of so-called smart columns that aren’t natively available, including the number of comments, the last commenter, and many, many other comment-related columns.

This is how it looks in action:


As you can see above, you can easily sort and filter by the number of comments, and also use it across JXL's advanced features, such as support for (configurable) issue hierarchies, issue grouping by any issue field(s), sum-ups, or conditional formatting.

Any questions just let me know,
