How can I filter for all issues where I have commented?

Is it possible to filter for all issues where I have commented. It doesn't matter what I comment, but I am trying to search for all issues where it is something like "commented by = currentUser()"

I am using JIRA version (v5.2.11#854-sha1:ef00d61)

Hi Nabil,

This is not available by default in JIRA, but you should be able to do this by installing the Script Runner Plugin. This will allow you to run a jql query like this:
issueFunction in commented("by username")
in JIRA advanced search.

You may refer to the following for further reference:

Try Without using Any plugins :)

@Nabil as you are looking for where you have commented.
One Simple Workaround in JIRA is to looks for your Proflie.

1. Go to your profile, Navigate to Top Right Corner of the page
2. Check Activity Stream for the user (This will List all activities and comments)
3. Similary JIRA will give Links to other user profiles whenever they are Tagged/Mentioned and you can check comments or activities by other users.

May Not be directly applicable to all as depends on the use case, still hope this helps as no additional plugins are needed for this.

Not sure if that functionality exist at the moment.

You can use Jira Comment Toolbox to filter issues according to comments with new JQL functions listed below.

    • Commented By User
    • Commented By User Between Dates
    • Commented By Group Member
    • Commented By Group Member Between Dates
    • Commented By Role Member
    • Commented By Role Member Between Dates

Moreover, You can contact with for your new JQL function requests and comment functionality.
