When you add this post-function to a transition and trigger the transition, the add-on picks the value entered in the Comment field and adds it as a comment on all the issues linked to the current issue through the selected link type. The Comment to be created can be any simple text, e.g. This is a comment. You can also use Nunjucks annotations to insert issue, linked issue, transition and current user information into the comment text, using the 'issue', 'linkedIssue', 'transition' and 'currentUser' variables, respectively. To find out more about these variables, see How to insert information using Nunjucks annotations.
