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 ,
