Automation condition

Is there a way to write a condition to check if an issue has a comment that was created by a specific user?

Hi @Bill Penney , 


you can do this using Automation for Jira. You will have to create a rule to trigger when an issue is commented, and check the Comment Author value :

Let me know if this helps, 



Sorry, I should have elaborated on this a little more.  I have a trigger on a Incoming webhook from Github that adds a comment to a particular issue. The problem is, this trigger is fired multiple times, however I only need to add the comment once per issue. The prevent duplicate check is not working on the add comment component, probably because I'm using smart values for the content. Don't know if I need to iterate through all the comments to see if the author.displayname = "username".
