Right now your Jira instance uses relative dates. If you are on Jira Server/Data Center then you can follow the following KB to switch your Jira to absolute dates:
But you will have absolute date in all Jira. Not only in comments.
I really wonder why anyone would ever use relative dates, and why software developers ever decided to program it like that. Because they were tired of putting a boring old date on the screen ? Or because they want to give the impression that there is some fake AI behind it ?
I find myself continually having to calculate what the real date is. Please get this solved!
Hi @Eran Polna
Check this doc from Atlassian about disabling relative dates:
If you want to change dates format you can go to: Administration - System - General configuration - Advanced settings.
Hope this helps
In Jira Server going to Administration - System - General configuration - Advanced settings will give you the following options. See screenshot. No option to change the relative date format.
Still only way is to change the 'hardcoded' start up config file(links above) of the server(Server/Data Center)
