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)
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:
I created a filter for this search
(summary ~ currentUser() OR description ~ currentUser() OR assignee = currentUser() OR worklogAuthor = currentUser() OR comment ~ currentUser() OR watcher = currentUser() OR text ~ currentUser() OR creator = currentUser() OR voter = currentUser()) AND status != done ORDER BY lastViewed DESC
To show me everywhere I'm mentioned and the ticket isn't done
I added "assignee was currentUser()" as well:
(summary ~ currentUser() OR description ~ currentUser() OR assignee = currentUser() OR assignee was currentUser() OR Status Changed BY currentuser() OR worklogAuthor = currentUser() OR comment ~ currentUser() OR watcher = currentUser() OR text ~ currentUser() OR creator = currentUser() OR voter = currentUser()) AND status != done ORDER BY lastViewed DESC
Is this still working for you? im not getting any results- possibly due to recent change to "user" display name GDPR stuff...?
Any part of the query that doesnt translate into an actual "assignee" (i.e. Assignee, creator, watcher etc) doesnt return a result.
This to me shows that its having trouble identifying currentUser() as a "mention" rather than an assigned user.
Update- the response I got on support ticket I opened is that "~" currentUser() is not supported (in Cloud at least) for anything other than "=" anymore- the documentation has apparently been updated to show that...
I'd be happy to hear if anyone has ideas for an alternative...
Looks like question Not active, still may help New vistiors.
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.
Tried this on mine. Would have worked but it only displays 25. I need to go back over 200 or so tickets to find the one comment I need to remove as it no longer applies. I am on dozens of projects and create, read, update, and delete dozens of tickets per day. So close!
This is what worked for me.
I added a custom field of type "People" to my ticket and I called it 'Commented by'.
next I inserted an automation rule triggered by a 'ticket commented' event and I added a custom action that updates the 'Commented by' field as follows:
"Commented by" : [
With this rule, every time a ticket is commented, the commentator is appended to the 'Commented by' field. In other words, all tickets have the list of all the people who have commented them.
This said, it's very easy to use this 'Commented by' field in a query to extract all tickets commented by me or any other user.
I'd like to do the opposite, show tickets where I'm NOT the latest comment.
I need to filter all tickets where i need to respond.
Have an automation for this that sets the status to "waiting reply from customer" and "waiting for my reply", but that only works on tickets created after the rule.
can I make a filter (jql) to search comments by name of user? like:
"project = "XYZ" AND issueFunction in commented("by curentUser")"
It gives me a list of issues where the user has commented but I wanna know how many comments exactly the curent user have in project.
If there is a possibility to get the filter into a gadget, it would be perfect.
Please, any advice?
You can use Jira Comment Toolbox to filter issues according to comments with new JQL functions listed below.
