We are currently using RTC 4.0.4, and I wanted to check on whether comments within a work item discussion (CCM) can be edited? I can't find any way to edit/delete comments from a work item from within the web application, however I was able to locate a delete or clear option from within the Eclipse client. However, the or clear was going to remove all comments, not an individual one.

Is this possible?

Using the "Empty Comment" function in Eclipse will clear one comment at a time.  The warning message will tell you the number of the comment to be cleared.  The old comment timestamp and the user who posted it will still appear, but the contents will be removed.  I don't know of a way to clear using the web client.

Hmmm Ok, got it. So the number it shows is corresponding the specific comment that had been right clicked on with the focus.
