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

Thanks some much for your help

Hi Jenna, 

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

Thank you. 

Hi @Kevin Seery @Jenna Davis @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]  I got a similler task so I I have used this script it worked well thanks 

I'm just wondering that is there any chance that it will copy the user  also who commented .

this script is copying the date and Comment i just want to add to copy the user also who commented 

can you please help to achieve this 

Thanks,

Kumar

Off the top of my head, I think you want comment.getAuthor().getName() for the user's login (get.fullName() for their display name if you need that too)

HI @Nic Brough [Adaptavist] Thanks for your response 

here is the script i found in atlassina community its working as excepted 

here is the script

 

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def user = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()
def commentManager = ComponentAccessor.getCommentManager()
def rendererManager = ComponentAccessor.getRendererManager()
def comments = commentManager.getCommentsForUser(issue, user)

if (comments) {
def commentAuthor = comments.last().getUpdateAuthorFullName()
def commentDate = comments.last().getUpdated()
def commentBody = rendererManager.getRenderedContent("atlassian-wiki-renderer", comments.last().body, issue.issueRenderContext)

return commentBody + "<p><span style=\"font-size:smaller;color:#a9a9a9;font-style:italic\">" + commentDate.format('YYYY-MM-dd') + " | " + commentAuthor + "</span></p>"
}

 

thanks,

Kumar

Where was this script added ? Is it in script runner

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)

Yes the script was added to script runner.

It's added as a "scripted field".  Add a new custom field, select that type, and place it on the screens you want to see it on.

Then go to admin -> script runner -> scripted fields and add the script there.
