Quick filter for "not commented over 3 days"

Valentina Grishkevich July 9, 2019

Is there a way to create a quick filter that shows only issues which haven't been commented over last 3-4-5-whatever days?

I know we have "updatedDate" thing but it's not working the way I need. Any activity on the ticket (like logging time) will update this parameter while I want to track comments only.

Hello @Valentina Grishkevich 

You will need ScriptRunner plugin for this, because of this specific JQL function.

I need the same thing, couldn't do it without a plugin.

Enter this into your advanced JQL search

issueFunction in lastComment("before -3d")

Hi Valentina, you also should try this recomendation from @Kristian Walker _Adaptavist_

This requirement can be used using the Script Fields functionality provided by the ScriptRunner Plugin.

The way to do this is to set a new Script Field called Last Comment Added and configure its searcher type to be Date Time Range Picker and ensure this field is set to appear on issues for all projects and issue types.

You should then add the script below to the Script Field

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def comments = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()?.getComments(issue)

// If the current Issue has comments then get the date that the last comment was created

if (comments) {
    return comments.last()?.created as Date

Finally you should then ensure that the Template for the field is set to Date Time Picker like in the screenshot below and then you will see details of when the latest comment was added such as in the screenshot below.
