      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

          TY @Chris
          this helps isolate the neglected tickets.
          still would be great to identify the tickets that i own an update on.

          thanks again.

          I agree. I wrote a plugin that provided a custom field that was set to True if the last commenter was not the assignee with this idea. The trouble is that adding a new comment to an issue doesn't trigger the index update for the issue. So I seem to recall that the search wasn't as useful as I wanted. Still, I used it to color cards in GreenHopper Kanban boards to give me a clue about what to work on next. In the end, searching on Updated in Last Day, Updated in Last Three Days worked just about as well

          i could be wrong but a customer field (advanced) labeled as follows may be the solution.
          now if i can filter using JQL by the same field, then i am there.

          the field is:
          Username of last updater or commenter
          Display the username of either the last updater or commenter
          depending on which happened most recently.

          i got what i needed - when you sort by the new adv custom field - the field name "cf[10801]" becomes visible in the JQL, from there i just added: cf[10801] != "Raffi"

          project = ProjectKey AND (status = Open OR status = reOpened) AND updatedDate < -4w AND cf[10801] != "Raffi" ORDER BY cf[10801] ASC, key DESC, updated ASC, priority DESC

          Atlassian Where are you with fixing this issue?

          I tested 6.1.4 JIRA and search by comment does not actually work.
          Inaccurate results, Search system is loose,
          THIS IS STILL A BUG
          Search by Comment has never been fixed.
          Yes you can try and search for a user with comments, but the results are not accurate
