Deprecation notice - removal of comment object data in jira:issue_* webhooks

In October 2016, we announced upcoming changes to how comment data is sent in webhooks.

The following webhooks will no longer contain any comment objects in their body:

  • jira:issue_created
  • jira:issue_deleted
  • jira:issue_updated

These features will be removed in the future, at least six months after this notice was published, as described in the Atlassian REST API Policy. Please watch ACJIRA-1225 for detailed updates on the status of this change.

What will happen if I do nothing?

If your app uses the comment object data from any registered jira:issue_* webhooks, you may encounter complications from the absence of this object after its removal.


These features have been replaced with the comment_created, comment_deleted and comment_updated webhooks. These webhooks are available today.
