I am trying to create a filter that shows all issues that have a blocker comment. When I search for `"Blocker Comment[Paragraph]" is not empty` I get issues that have a blocker comment (good), but I also get issues that used to have a blocker comment (bad). So if I add a blocker comment to an issue, then clear the blocker comment out, the filter will still surface that issue.
How do I create a filter that only returns issues that currently have a blocker comment?
If you are searching for issues with a blocker comment, you can try to create such a filter in Dynamic Filters: JQL Replacer addon. It is developed by my SaaSJet team to simplify database queries. All you need is to choose the required data with the help of a visual manager:
As a result, you get comments that show issues only with the content you need.
Hope you find this helpful.

Hey @Gabriel Deal ,
once you clear your field (completely), it shouldn't be returned by that search you've mentioned anymore.
Could you please provide additional information regarding the custom field type? Is this a classic or a next-gen project?
is there any chance the field was not actually cleared out completely but rather there is some kind of space in it?
You could try to export them from Issue Navigator and look in the export's file (common is a CSV file) if there are any suspicious characters or anything else that is not obvious right now.
