CurrentUser() in issueFunction

issueFunction in commented() seems to work fine when using a literal. Is there any way to push something like the currentUser() function into it?

What does "using a literal" mean?  And "push something into it"?

A "literal" is just ASCII characters in quotation marks. By "push something," I mean to be able to replace the "literal" with something that has to be resolved, like the standard JIRA currentUser() function I used in the example. We are trying to use issueFunction in commented() in a filter that would work for any user, not just a specific name entered into quotations.

This appears to have been done a long time ago:

I just tested that it works:

issueFunction in commented("by currentUser()")

(and it did).

My apologies; the issue appears to be an anomaly with certain of our issues with auto-generated comments. The syntax you've quoted works fine with manually entered comments.
