In JIRA can a comment to reference another comment

Hi all,

In JIRA can a comment to reference another comment.  So typing in a comment that refers to another comment, say in another project.    I know each comment is stored in the database and has to have a unique to to access within the database so it is possible, just do know if anyone has done anything like this.

I know that I can create a request for enhancement if it doesn't but I was just not sure if it does.  

Thanks to anyone who knows,

Hi Robert,

if you hover with the mouse over a comment, you will see a chain-link-sign. Right click on this icon, copy this link to the clipboard and paste this link to the new comment.


That permanent link is very ugly. Is there a better solution? I hope there's a way to jump from a comment to another one with shorter link name.

@Young If within the same issue, the anchor link can be used to refer to the comment where the actual text might look like something like:

And display like:
