View comments by user

How can I view all comments in all projects for just a particular user (comments by user)

I saw that ticket and it appears that with the on demand version the toolkit should be installed and I should have access to a 'participant' field. I don't and when I try for 'Participant = currentuser()' I get an error: Field 'Participant' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it.

Not sure what I am doing wrong. Some of those comments are 5 years old from that ticket and realted tickets.


Solution is to install Script Runner plugin ( and then use for searching issueFunction custom field.
Example from this page:

Find issues commented by jbloggs within the last 4 weeks:

issueFunction in commented("after -4w by jbloggs")

Looks like that script runner plugin isn't available for On-Demand which is what we use. I'm stuck, right?
