Chnage the comments' author

Hi! I'm trying to dinaically change the comments' author in a project in order to, in certain way, to anonymize it. 

I added a listener to the Issue Comment event with the following ScriptRunners code: 


import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.comments.CommentImpl
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.*
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.*
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.project.component.*


    CommentImpl a = (CommentImpl) event.comment;


    ComponentAccessor.commentManager.update(event.comment, false);

I can see in the logs of the event the name of the original author and then , "John Doe" data. 


But finally the author doesn't change. I think it's not enough with the last line of code ... or jira is running something after the execution of my listener.

Any ideas will be apreciated !

Hi @fobrutsky 


Last time I face this use case I end up creating a new comment by copying the current comment then deleting the old one. Pretty sure I did not manage to make the update function worked.


So something like that:


new comment = commentManager.create(comment.getIssue, YOURNEWUSER, comment.getBody(), comment.getCreated())



You need to select the create function that worked for you.



Certainly the update function should  work :) but it don't. So, good idea!. Will do the way you suggest. Thanks!
