      Description

      Atlassian Update - 6 February 2015

      Hi everyone,

      Thank you for your feedback and votes; however, we have decided to close this issue. As you can see from the history, this issue has been open for almost 12 years, yet I do not expect it to be on the JIRA team's roadmap in the foreseeable future. It is unlikely we will resolve it as described in the original request.

      The easiest way to view issues that you have looked at recently is to use the issueHistory() function. This is easily accessible by clicking "More..." under the "Recent Issues" section of the Issues menu.

      If you find yourself needing to frequently track issues you have commented on, we recommend enabling the "autowatch" preference.

      Alternatively, this function has been implemented in a number of JIRA add-ons:

      As is the case with all issues on jira.atlassian.com, closing this issue does not mean this functionality will never be a part of JIRA by default. However, the JIRA product management team is making an effort to make jira.atlassian.com a more valuable tracking tool by closing the issues that we do not expect to work on in the reasonably foreseeable future.

      As always, please do not hesitate to contact me directly with questions.

      Regards,
      Dave Meyer
      JIRA Product Manager

      Original request description:

      Hi,

      Our users would like to search on issues he has added comments to. It would be a handy way to choose issues to be watched.

      We can currently search on text within comments, but not filter on comment-authors.

      In the filter page, perhaps as one of the attribute fields, there could be a field for "Includes Comment By".

      Thanks,
      Steve

          Very disappointing, but better to know that it will not be implemented so thanks for that information.

          Yes, very disappointing indeed. This seems to be such a basic feature missing for a sophisticated issue management system.

          Concerning votes, this issue is on position 100 of over 35,000 issues, so there seems to be quite some need, and for end users like me, none of the mentioned workarounds works: The "autowatch" preference does not trigger the search to return only issues I commented on, same applies for issueHistory() function (which is anyway too limited with only 50 issues). I can't add this very basic functionality via add-on because of lacking rights, and for the same reason, I can't even see whether any of the mentioned add-ons is installed (according to search in documentation) - is any of them active in this Jira installation?

          Is it really so much work to implement?

          I'd like to add that it would be nice to search for issue not only current user has commented on but issues where comments were added to by anybody since X time ago.
