Can I check if the Last comment was made today, and if so whether or not it matches a string?

I'm creating a filter and want to get only those issues where a comment made today matches a particular string. Therefore, I don't want issues where there may be the same comment, but it was entered anytime before today.

Otherwise you can write your own JQL plugin

List<Comment> allComm=ComponentAccessor.getCommentManger.getComments(issueObject);

List<Comment> today=new ArrayList<Comment>();

for(int i=0;i<allComm.size();i++){

if(allComm.get(i).getCreated().equals("Today date"){





// sort the today comments according to their Updated date
