Hello @Carlos ,

There is a limitation to this that makes things a bit difficult.  The "Comment" field does not have a dedicated JQL that can be tied to a comment being added during a specific timeframe rather the comment field only allows for searching for comments containing or excluding the specified text.  So when a comment is added it will fall under the issue updated trigger event for JQL searching,  so using something like  "updated >= startOfDay()" for any issue that had a comment added or had any other actions such as a field modification take place would fall into the result set.

 However, the limitation in the JQL looks like you could use the third party add-on ScriptRunner as a workaround via the extended JQL functions provided by the tool as discussed in the following thread:

Next being aware of the possibility of additional data with this limitation in the JQL or the need to use an additional toolset in a third party app, Using Automation for Jira you could set up a rule on a Schedule Trigger event for once a day Fixed Rate or Advanced CRON expression, to define the time interval.

Within the "scheduled" trigger you can flag the option to "Run a JQL search and execute actions for each issue in the query." and use something like "updated >= startOfDay()" as the filter.

Then add in a Send e-mail action using Smart values such as "{{issue.key}} " and "{{issue.comments}}"to include the issue details you are looking for, with each issue that meets the criteria.

There is an example in the documentation at the section for "{{issue.comments}}" showing how to list each comment that an issue has, and include the author and creation date/time, the example being:

Comment by: {{author.displayName}} at: {{created}}

Hey team, how are we tracking on this task?

We'll be ready to ship at the end of the week.

Great, thanks for the update!

Note that there are options to show either single comment actions like the most recent comment OR all comments on an issue per the JQL criteria, and there would not be a method to only isolate the comments of a single day, without sending a notification for each comment event individually throughout the day as the comment is added.

Additionally, there is a feature request relating to this that we are looking for feedback on, Initially we had a separate request specifically for a daily Digest email Viewable here,  that we closed out and wrapped into the following request that is an overarching Email feature request to "Reduce JIRA email chattiness":

On that request, there is a link to a product feedback survey specifically relating to this, that I highly recommend checking out if you have the time to fill it out.
