Comment History for Jira

Keep and review the history of your issue comments with delta display.


This is the documentation for the Atlassian Jira appĀ Comment History Log for Jira.


Head to the settings within Jira. Note that administrator privileges are required to access the settings.

In the menu on the left side, navigate to “Find new apps” under the “Apps” category. Search for “Comment History”, wait until the entry “Comment History Log for Jira” is shown and proceed to “Install” the add-on.

Sync Process

After installation we need to sync your current issue comments to capture the initial state. This might take a while depending on how many issue comments there are.

You can always retrigger this process manually, but there is usually no need to.

The progress of a sync process currently running is shown directly on a issue panel or in the configuration section.


The timeline option orders the comments by time which help to visualize the overall changes of the comments within context. The Delta View is by default activated and helps to find the differences.

Grouped by Comment

The grouped panel groups the changes of each comment within the issue separately. This allows to inspect a single comment and its changes isolated even if the changes are timely widely spread.

Known problems

There are no known problems so far. Please reach out to us if you encounter any issues while using the app!
