Viewing Jira Comments in Salesforce

Jira Issue comments can be viewed in Salesforce through a dedicated Visualforce panel and Chatter. This allows a Salesforce agent to view or exchange comments with the Jira team.

At the moment, these features are only supported by the Case Object.

Viewing Jira Comments with Lightning Experience

The panel is an aggregated view of comments from all associated Jira issues, as well as the comments from the Object itself. The comments displayed on this panel are bound to any comment filter set by your administrator.

Your administrator must have also set up the Jira Comments panel for Lightning Experience.

Note that the comments in blue are from Salesforce and comments in grey are from Jira.

Viewing Jira Comments in Chatter (Case Feed) 

Jira comments can also be posted to the Case feed in Chatter. When someone creates or edits a comment in Jira, a post will be made to the Case feed of the corresponding associated Case object. 

You will see Jira comments in Chatter if:

  • Your administrator enabled Chatter Feed setting in Salesforce.
  • The Jira comment satisfies comment privacy and hashtag filters set by your administrator.
  • The associated Jira issue is not marked as View-only.



Note that the Chatter post is posted by an administrator account, due to a limitation of Salesforce Chatter API. A remark, however, is provided to indicate the actual user who left the comment in Jira.
