How do you find the name of a JIRA field to use in JQL?

Specifically looking for Comment ID.   To use in JQL filter such as CommentID > 111111

I'm using Power BI Pro Connector for JIRA and it allows me to put in a JQL filter statement.  I can pull back Comment ID from the data and it is called comment id, but I can't use this in the JQL filter.    Get error:  "Field 'commentid' does not exist or you do not have permission to view it."

Generally, I want to know how to get the JQL field name from the field name shown in the PBI Connector.  I want a list that says like "Key = IssueKey".  "CommentID  = ???"

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

There is no comment ID field in Jira, Power BI extracts it from the issue data (it's actually the unique id of the comment in the database)

JQL doesn't need the comment id, it uses simply "comment" for searching the comments of an issue.
