How to display Last comment in Filter, JQL and any Add-on.

SaaSJet team has prepared an interesting use case for our Time in Status for Jira Cloud users. This info can be useful for users of other Atlassian Marketplace apps too.

We always hear you and try to implement your requests. So now you have the ability to monitor all the comments, including the last one, using the custom field only. You don’t need to waste time scrolling and searching for the last comment anymore. Just a few clicks - and you’ll get what you need.

Follow this short step-by-step guide on how to do that easily and enjoy the results!.


Step 1

First of all, you need to create the new custom field in the project for every Issue type. Type the name “Last Comment” for a custom filed and choose the “Paragraph” type (as it is displayed in the screenshots below).



Step 2

Then start the Automation process. Here’s what you should do:

Go to Project -> Setting-> Apps-> Project Automation -> Create rule


You can start when the Issue is Commented, and edit a custom field with the latest Comment.



    "fields": {

        "Thanks for raising {{issue.key}}. {{issue.comments.last.body}}"




Look on the screenshot below to get a clear view of how to do that properly.



Step 3

Go to Time in Status for Jira Cloud add-on (or any other you need) -> Columns -> Select Last Comment field

As the result, you will see the custom field you have created with the latest value.



That’s all!

Now you know how to display the last comment in the filter, JQL, or any add-on too. 

Our team always strives to make your working process more convenient and easier. So, try our new add-on’s features and abilities. And enjoy how it works!

If you haven’t used  Time in status for Jira Could (by SaaSJet) yet, first of all, discover its usefulness at Atlassian Marketplace.


Best Regards

SaaSJet Team
