Is it possible to delete automatically created comments batchwise?

Hello,

unfortunately, I pressed a wrong button in the "GANTT-Chart Plugin". That results in having thousands of comments with the same content added to each of my issues:

"Update issue for Gantt-Chart usage by setting a default effort of 1 days and initializing both planning dates."

That looks really ugly - is there a safe way to delete ALL of those comments (with this specific content) without harming the infrastructure? (Maybe a DELETE FROM ?? WHERE ?? = "Update issue for Gantt-Chart usage by setting a default effort of 1 days and initializing both planning dates.")

How to get access to the JIRA database? Or is there a simpler way to do that?

Any kind of help would be appreciated!

Best regards,

Christian

Hi Christian,

did you had an answer about that? We had the same problem here.

Thanks,

Hi Sabrina,

no, unfortunately there was no solution found by me. If the issue is _very_ big you can try to solve it directly in the database - but the pain was not big enough for me to go this risk.

Please let me know if you find a solution!

Thanks,

Christian

Alright, thanks for the response :-) I'll let you know if I find another solution!
