I was looking at this trigger as well, does anyone has alternative solution to detect comment deletion event?

Hi @leonwongie and @KarChunNg ,

I have created FRGE-676: Provision of Jira issue deleted event and FRGE-677: Provision of Jira comment deleted event to request these features.



Hi guys,

Currently, Forge do not support deleted product events where we need to check the permissions for the deleted resource such as avi:confluence:created:page or avi:jira:deleted:issue. However, we do have plan to add these events in FY23.

For those who aren’t Atlassians, “FY23” means after July 2022.

Hi @ZwiiDoan, do you have an exact date for when the jira:deleted:issue event will be available?

Hi @ibuchanan!
July is over, what about status of the delete issue trigger feature?
Will really appreciate the update

HI @Benitojimnez1 @Olga,

As @ZwiiDoan has pointed out, support for deleted product events is in our roadmap for FY23 (not a commitment to be released on July 2022). This feature is still under development and we will make a CDAC announcement once it is available.

As a clumsy workaround, automation does have triggers for issue deleted/comment edited event. You can translate that into something your plugin can listen to (e.g. a change in a hidden custom field).

Where can we check on updates on this topic?
