A description of how different features the plugin provide work along with descriptions of known limitations. This page was introduced for the 3.1.5 version release which featured a new searching capability along with compatibility with the JIRA Data Center v6.3 release.


 

 Configuration Options

The CCC Last Comment Custom Field lets you display the contents of the most recent comment on the issue (the 'last' comment). The amount of content displayed is configurable by your JIRA Administrator for the system. The following options are available:

  • Minimum Length of comment to display 
    • If the minimum character limit is exceeded additional characters will be added until the end of the current sentence or until the max value is exceeded. Leave one value blank to display the entire contents of the most recent comment.
  • Maximum Length of comment to display
    • Once the maximum length of the comment to display is met then the contents are returned to the calling process (the sentence is truncated). If this value is left blank then the entire comment will be returned.
  • Browse Issue Renderer
    • The renderer to use when viewing the issue details either alone or from within the Issue Navigator 'Detail' view
  • Issue Navigator Renderer
    • How to render the last comment value when viewing it as a list of issues in the Issue Navigator 'List' view
  • Excel Export Renderer
    • This controls how the data is exported to excel - if you want the HTML tags stripped out then select 'Plain Text' as the renderer
  • Username and Timestamp
    • Selecting this option will have the system display who authored the comment and when it was created (or last modified)
  • Compress Comments
    • Directs the renderer to strip out any blank lines from the comment before displaying it in any of the rendering contexts

 


 

 How The Last Comment Searcher Works

Our custom Last Comment Searcher is an enhanced text searcher for the CCC Last Comment custom field type. In addition to being able to search through the content of the last comment, we have created targeted search functions that allow you to search for the author of the last comment, the project roles the author is in, and the user groups the author is in.

  • Searching Content

    • To search through the content of the last comment, simply enter the search term as you would for any text-based custom field.

    • The entire last comment is searchable even if the field is configured to display only a portion.

  • Searching Author

    • To search for an author of the last comment using JIRA's advanced search, use our Last Comment Author function: lastCommentAuthor("")
  • Searching Project Roles

    • To search for issues commented by users in a certain project role using JIRA's advanced search, use our Last Comment Roles function: lastCommentRole("")
  • Searching User Groups

    • To search for issues commented by users in a certain user group using JIRA's advanced search, use our Last Comment Group function: lastCommentGroup("")
