Use case

This calculated field returns the last comment, its author, and a timestamp in a text field.


Create a new Calculated Text Field (by JWT) custom field and name it properly.

Providing a description will help you to identify what the custom field does but this step is optional.

Parsing mode

Select Advanced text as parsing mode.

Parser expression

Add the following expression:

Text to be parsed for Calculated Text Field:
%{issue.lastComment} + "<br />-<br />by " + userFullName(%{}) + " at " + dateToString(last(allCommentDates()), LOCAL, USER_LANG)
# Example output:
# Sounds reasonable!
# -
# by John Doe at 17/Nov/20

Add the field to the relevant view screens.

Remember: All calculated fields are read-only and cannot be manually updated on a create or edit screen.
