I'd like to set up some queries to let non IT people get a view of what certain teams are doing. This would be mostly for sofware projects.
How can I give the ability to see just the date of the last comment and the subject without the ability to drill down into the issue?
You're most likely going to need an add-on such as ScriptRunner to perform this task especially since you're only wanting to see the date and subject of comments. Take a look at the Communities post titled Solved: Commented by and comment date in JQL for more information.
