You can edit a comment by first getting the comment ID. If you hover over the link icon of a comment(see screenshot) the ID should be contained in the link URL. commentID.png

With the commentID you can then update the comment

jira_options={'server': 'http://<jira_url>'}
jira=JIRA(options=jira_options,basic_auth=('username','password'))

comment = jira.comment('ALPHA-27', '10100')
comment.update(body = 'the text here will replace the text in the comment')

I'm sure there is a more streamlined method of obtaining the comment ID, but that should work for the sake of testing. 

when I edit a customfield, it returns

response text = {"errorMessages":["Internal server error"],"errors":{}}

 

do you know how to fix this?@Shaun Seaver
