Change history for edited comments

forums-5
I have a question regarding edited comments, the new feature added in JIRA 3.8.

>From what I can tell, it appears that the answer to this question is no, but I thought I'd ask to verify -- is change history of edited comments tracked in the database?

I realize that I can receive an email showing previous and new comments.  However, if I view an issue online and see that a comment has been edited, is there a way to see what the original comment was?

I tried it on jira.atlassian.com's TST project, and it doesn't look like it displays comment editing in the change history. I suggest you enter an improvement request linked to JRA-1100. While some nice features were included by Atlassian in the implementation of comment editing, here's apparently another feature that existed in the user contributed plug-in, but not in Atlassian's implementation.

I opened JRA-12400 to track this requirement.  Thanks for being a second set of eyes.

one of the reasons that Comment change history is not implemented is that Comments (unlike fields) may have a security privilege associated with them. If you have comment that you edit you would need to have the security context saved with the history item. So if you commented on an issue something which included content you did not wish a third party to see, then changed it later to be more palatable to a wider audience, you would not wish that earlier version to be visible to the wider audience.

Jed, I understand the problem, but this is  somewhat looked after in Philip's plug-in:

"unless the visibility is set to anyone the comment body is not recorded to the change history since there is no way to hide a entry here"

Neal,

But there's one problem with that. The entry in the change history will be there forever
regardless of a later changed visibility level. Hopefully the change history will be reworked in the future (e.g for Field level security it is not suitable anymore)

Hi, if it helps I have a plugin that will let you view the history of a comment.  Its called "Comment History" and is on the Atlassian Marketplace at: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.redmoon.jira.commenthistory.commenthistory
