We were using Jira 6.1.6. We have introduced some changes on the comment-edit.vm file to restrict the comment visibility to a certain role by default. The lines were the following:
#set ($selectedCommentLevel = "role:XXXXX")
#set ($selectedCommentLevel = "role:XXXXY")
After we migrate to 6.2.6, i looked for the file to add this lines again, but i found that there was not comment-edit.vm on the template folder.
I made a fresh install of a 6.2.6. in a test environment, and the file wasn t present either.
I put a copy of the file on the template folder of this new instance (with the proper instance group and roles ids ) but nothing happened (auto reload of velocity templates was set to true on velocity.properties and i also restarted Jira just in case).
any thought of how can i force this default again? could the location of this file has changed? may i have to add this comment-edit.vm to an 'index-like' file so Jira can load it?
Any ideas would be very appreciated,
Pablo da Silva
I believe the file you are looking for has been renamed to system-comment-field-edit.vm and changed paths after JIRA 6.2.1.
It can now be found in the path below:
