Show user and time of person that edited a comment

Version:  JIRA Server 8.4.2

Is there a way that when a comment is edited (responded to)  that it flags the user doing the edit flagged inside the comment?  It is my understanding that when a comment is edited or changed that it is deleted and replaced by the new comment in full so that no history is kept.  I have been looking through plugins but so far found mostly for the Cloud but then I just started searching.   So any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

 

The idea in mind is so it would look something like this :

 

All   Comments     Work Log     History   Activity

_____________________________________________________________

  John Smith added a comment - 1 hour ago - edited

     This is my comment about this issue

   Jane Smith edited comment - 15 min ago

         This issue looks like a good idea..

_________________________________________________________________

J. Doe added a comment - 30 min ago

   I will schedule a meeting after Jane weighs in on this issue.

_________________________________________________________________

 

 

 

Instead of like this :

All   Comments     Work Log     History   Activity

_____________________________________________________________

  John Smith added a comment - 15 min ago - edited

     This is my comment about this issue

         This issue looks like a good idea..

_________________________________________________________________

J. Doe added a comment - 30 min ago

   I will schedule a meeting after Jane weighs in on this issue.

Hi Alex, you can find who and when the comment was edited by hovering the mouse in the red edited word as shown here:

Also if you edited the comment (using the pencil icon), the information is displayed together with the original persona who wrote the comment as shown here:

ksnip_20191027-101730.png

Sadly, there is no out-of-the-box feature to display this information directly in the tab,

Kind Regards

So it can not be done with out the use of a plugin and changing the way that Comments are handled by JIRA.   That is what I figured and was afraid of.
