Hello @Eusebius Jin ,

David from ALM Works here.

Could you share a bit more about the scenario?  Are the users using the example formula exactly as it is, or modifying it?  If it is being modified, could you please share the exact formula that works for some users but appears blank for others?

Please also feel free to contact our support team directly via email or customer portal

Best Regards,
David Niro

Thanks for reply.

I used the sample formula without modify.

comments.FILTER($.author = "UserID").UMAX_BY($.created)
This will make it blank .

But, when using JQL, displayed lastcomment.
issueFunction in lastComment("by UserID")} : Lastcomment

Please let me know if you need any information.
I will contact you by email.

Hello @Eusebius Jin ,

Just to make sure I'm clear. Where you have "UserID" in the formula above; you are entering the actual user ID, right?  Something like JIRAUSER55512 ?

I've tested and the formula is working for me.  Please do reach out to our support team and we can help troubleshoot what may be happening in your scenario.
