Hi,

I need to display last comment in customfield using Groovy Script.

Anyone done that?

Put below code under custom "scripted field" 

 

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 

Hi Tukaram,

 

is it possible to add user name who commented on this along with comment?.

Yes , use below code

 

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 + " Author: " + comment.authorFullName

Thank you, Tukaram.

Thanks, Tukaram

Hello, 


First of all thank you, however how can I add error handling on it? when an issue is created the field starts throwing up a lot of error messages in the logs as there is no comment yet. 

Try below one

def comment = commentManager.getLastComment (issue)

if(comment != null)
{
comment.body + " Author: " + comment.authorFullName
}

Thanks, that worked beautifully.

Hello Jan:

In this question you will find an asnwer on how to get a comment from an Issue Object. Afterwards you can iterate to find the latest one, or find the one with the latest date.

If this doesn't work for you, let us know and I'll program a 1 on 1 meeting with you to get it working.

Cheers!

Hi, Any idea if and how can I re-render the wiki style render ?

Lots of comments contain formatting and user mentions , new lines, bullets are not formatted at all.

Try this, it works but i found that my Database usage spiked after using it.
