Display Last Comment in Wiki Rendered Styled Custom Field


This script highlights the last comment posted on an issue in a script field. The field renders wiki formatting (bold, italics, underline etc).


As a developer working on a new project with a large number of issues, I must ensure I'm working with the most up-to-date information. Therefore, it's useful to have the latest comment highlighted, so I don't have to spend time navigating the comment history and potentially work from out of date information. Using this script, I can display the most recent comment in a script field where it is easily visible.

Good to Know
