JIRA Comment Replies

We would like for Jira comments to be handled like Confluence comments where you can reply directly to a comment - right now, it is not clear, especially when there are several collaborating on an item, to know what comment is in reply to another comment.

I searched the feature request and found this that indicates it's resolved. But, I am not able to use anything as such in OnDemand.https://studio.atlassian.com/browse/JST-983

Does anyone know if this is something that is possible in current JIRA versions or have located a similar feature request that I can vote on?

Hi Karie,

It looks like your question was answered in this comment. The relevant JIRA bug is JRA-3406, which is still outstanding.

Thank you for the info. I did add my vote and comment to https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-3406

I'm surprised that the request has been around for 5+ years, with a high number of votes, it has yet to make it in a release - especially given that this is a core, basic feature for any collaborative product.

Maybe someone has a plugin that can assist. We use issue tracking collaboration signifcantly as we have people in different countries assisting and we want comments on the tickets to keep a good log and discussion vs information getting lost in emails or the right people always being included on an email.

Hello ,
We are pleased to announce the release of our Jira plugin Multithreaded Comments which enables the possibility to have comments trees where you can reply to comments and keep the main comment parents at the top level.


We give support for improvements and new functionalities
