Where can I see all the comments I wrote on issues on the GitHub website?

https://github.com/issues only list the issues I have opened, and not the issues I have commented on.


You can view issues you've commented on by using the following search string in your Issues page search box:

is:issue commenter:username

(Replace username with your GitHub username.)

This will show all issues that you've commented on. To show only open issues, add the is:open qualifier.

    This only see my comment on my issue, I want to see my comment in other issue. – Mithril Mar 1 '18 at 6:11

    Using is:issue commenter:username should show all issues you've commented on, whether you created the issue or not. (Just tested it successfully.) – freginold Mar 1 '18 at 14:36

    Oh, I found the problem. I hope the default order is showed by comment time desc order, but Newest only show order by issue create time desc. The most approximated option is Recently updated , though not exactly what I want . – Mithril Mar 2 '18 at 2:00
  • to be clear, are you saying I go to any repo that I have created and do that search? Because that turns up zero results. – Michael Jul 22 at 21:34
  • @Michael it works from the Issues page. Did you add the is:open parameter? If not, it sounds like all issues you've commented on have been closed. – freginold Aug 28 at 9:13

You can view all the issues on Github you have commented on by going to https://github.com/notifications/subscriptions and selecting Reason as Comment.

This will show all the issues that you've commented on.

You can also filter the issues by selecting other reason such as Assign, Author, Manual, Mention, etc. but you can select only one reason at a time. Also, you can filter the issues by repository by selecting the concerned repository from dropdown after clicking Repository

    And the UI link to that page is the little bell icon at the top-right. – Wadih M. Jun 13 at 22:41
  • This seems...false. For instance, this comment I made in mid-August is NOT showing up at /notifications/subscriptions?reason=comment; the most recent entry listed there is from July. – JamesTheAwesomeDude Aug 16 at 13:50
  • @JamesTheAwesomeDude Are you sure that the comment is not showing up? – Rounak Aug 17 at 16:30
  • @Rounak yeah: i.imgur.com/d4d31rl.png (and the "Sort" selector only has two options: "Most recently subscribed" and "Least recently subscribed") – JamesTheAwesomeDude Aug 21 at 13:19
  • This may not show the ones that you have unsubscribed from, despite the comment still being there. The "commenter:username" search will work. – Mizstik Aug 24 at 10:46
