Add Date to 'Last Comments' Field - script runner

Hi,

 

I would like to have a customer field that showed 'date of last comment'-'last comment' for example:

10/08 - this is the last comment

 

I'm using script runner and can get the last comment but how do you add the date of the last comment at the beginnning of the field?

 

Thanks

Kevin

 

Currnet script:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.Comment
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()
def comment = commentManager.getLastComment (issue)
comment.body

Hello, 

You can do something similar to this:

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.Comment
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()
def comment = commentManager.getLastComment (issue)
def date = comment.getCreated()

return ((date as String) + " " + comment.body)

 You may want to mess with the formatting a bit to make it look exactly as you want, but that will make the date the comment was created appear in front of the comment's body. :)

Let me know if you have any problems or questions!

Regards, 

Jenna

Hi Jenna,

 

Thanks so much for the quick response. this works realy well!! :)

How do I play with the format? (sorry very new to all this)

Would like to just show 'Aug 11'

Many Thanks

Hi Jenna, 

How do I get the last comment date of a public comment only?

Thank you.
