JQL to get comments posted within a date range (worklogDate but with comments)?

Hi all,

I'm having fun with Forge and I can retrieve issues that current user has added a worklog to within a given date range.

/rest/api/3/search?fields=summary,worklog&jql=project IN("MY-PROJECT","PROJECT-TWO") AND worklogDate >= startDate AND worklogDate <= endDate

I'd like to do the same with comment dates but all I can find in advanced search reference - JQL fields  is the ability to search text in comments.

Am I out of luck for now since there's no commentDate field to search on?

Hi @Jools

As you're on Jira Cloud, the correct answer is to get an app that provides JQL extensions you're looking for.

With standard JQL, you can only get a list of issues and export them to Excel for further processing. This works if you want to do a one-off analysis. If your use case is more dynamic than that, look beyond standard Jira.

Standard JQL doesn't easily allow it, but you can quickly find the results using our professional indexing service JQL Search Extensions


You can use this query to filter your issues that were commented between  2022/03/13 and 2022/06/17


commentedOnDate >= "2022/03/13" AND commentedOnDate < "2022/06/17" 


Check out the documentation for more examples.
I hope this helps!

I see, thanks Mauricio!
