      Description

      I've filed this issue as per https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/69998/how-to-insert-into-a-comment-a-link-to-a-certain-comment-of-another-issue-without-using-an-absolute-url
      Please note I don't want to establish a relationship between two issues... but simply refer to a certain comment (possibly on another issue within the same jira instance).
      A link using the comment sequence number would be great. I guess also something similar to confluence syntax [$comment-id] would be enough when you simply want to refer to what has been written into another issue's comment.
      Instead, having to provide an absolute URL is not portable at all.

          Jira comments all have permanent links I think. What is the disadvantage of using those in other comments?

          What is the disadvantage of using those in other comments?

          It's ugly and has lots of useless stuff in it?

          Take the link to your comment, it's now:

          https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-28976?focusedCommentId=684530&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-684530
          

          What's a focused comment id? Is there also an unfocused one? Why does page=... have to be in the link? Why is the comment ID repeated?

          Better would be something like

          https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-28976?comment=684530
          

          And as shortcut JRA-28976#684530
