Also commented jql function in script runner.
This will just find issues where the specified user commented, and not "participated" in as the Participants field gives you.
I appreciate you can't install plugins but maybe someone else has the same question.
AFAIK you can't do it without a plugin.
As a workaround, you can use a dashboard:
1 open Dashboard
2 Add Gadget Activitiy Stream
3 Add a global filter: Project is XY
4 Add a global filter: User is (username)
5 Below the Global Filter, klick JIRA - Add Filter: Activity is Comment
6 Set "limit to 99 items"
You now have the comments as an activity stream.
Not working for me. I'm adding the project and when I add the second filter (User is) I don't get any relevant results. I say relevant because it is not displaying anything (any suggested user names). Even so, if I click on Save, it does not display any results. Even if I add one of my colleagues (who I know for a fact commented on issues)
You can view JIRA Comment Toolbox . To search on author of the comments with or without date range.
Moreover, you can use JIRA Comment Toolbox for these;
Yes. You send a JSON file asking for issues and in the fields you specify "comments" (see below), and you get back a JSON file with a list of comments for each issue.
The data for each comment contains the comment ID, the author details, the body, the updater details (if comment was updated) and the dates (created, updated).
The input JSON would be like this:
"jql": "project = \"My SOSP Project\" AND key >= SOSP-1 AND key < SOSP-1001 order by key asc",
There is no way to search, AFAIK.
There are two options that I have used:
1. If you have the add-on Better Excel Exporter for Jira, you can run a query and export the results+comments into an Excel file.
2. Use the Jira REST-API to perform the query (as you specified above). In the list of fields to retrieve, specify the summary, comments and any other fields that you want.
Then write a script to find the comments you're interested in.
The input json would be similar to this:
"jql": "project = \"X Y Z\" AND worklogDate >= startOfMonth() order by key asc",
for every issue, you get the key and the fields you asked for. For the comments, it's a list of the issue's comments, each item containining the author, date, body and some more data.
I use the latter approach.
