      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.

          Yes I've spent 20 minutes attempting to find out how to do this, I'm very disappointed to see it's not yet possible. Please consider adding to your backlog for prioritization rather than closing it.

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