Filter Comments

This extension allows users to filter specific comments in artifacts in Modules. You can specify what comments Contains, who is the Author, from when to when the comment was updated, if it's resolved and what's its' priority.

User interface 



This extension, developed by Softacus, allows a quick and easy overview of all the comments in the displayed module. This extension allows users to not only display comments within a module as in DNG, but allows users to filter specific comments. The user can filter comments based on the author, from when to when the comment was updated, whether it is resolved and what is its priority. The user can select all options or only some in their various combinations or not select any filter. In case the user does not select any filter, the widget will create a report of all comments that are in the module. This whole solution is space-saving - it is displayed directly in the widget added to your mini dashboard. The created report contains information: ID and title of the artifact.

Problem to solve

The current implementation of DNG only allows filtering of comments with "exists" or "does not exist". Tracking comment attributes based on specific user needs is currently time and labor-intensive in DNG. This extension allows you to filter many more comment attributes to find the commented artifact based on your needs. Softacus has developed an extension that allows users to filter comment attributes. Thanks to this extension, the user has the opportunity to get a quick overview of the attributes of comments based on specific options directly in the widget in the user's mini dashboard.


Selected comments based on selected criteria

You can specify what comments Contains, who is the Author, from when to when the comment was updated, if it's resolved and what's its priority. The script then prints all artifacts whose comments are equal to the query. The script can also query Review Comments, but the query is limited

Filter based on specific link/attribute

You can filter by a specific link, a specific attribute, and if it is any value, or contains any value.


  • The script cannot be executed outside of the module
