A quick way to improve your Filter Results gadgets in JIRA dashboards or in the Issue Navigator is to include a column that shows the last comment. Today I will provide a SIL (Simple Issue Language) recipe to do just that.
This recipe addresses a limitation of JIRA where it is not possible to show the last issue comment. This limitation is being tracked on Atlassian's public JIRA site with key JRA-2734.
Disclaimer: This recipe involves scripting, which is curretnly not possible with JIRA OnDemand. See Restricted Functions in Atlassian OnDemand for more info.
Another Disclaimer: You could also purchase the CCC Last Comment plugin, but why buy countless plugins when you can do a tons of great things with one or two plugins. Plus what I'm about to show you gives you much more flexibility.
