trac_unread plugin

Description

This plugin tracks ticket page views and provides "last unread" link on ticket pages. Similar to one you've probably seen on most forums.

The only difference is that this plugin is better: it does not just uses your last login time, but actually tracks time when you requested each ticket - and that's why trac environment upgrade is required.

Of course, it does not work for anonymous users.

Can I use it in reports?

Yes, you can.

SQL report (for PostgreSQL), and here is screenshot:

But there are limitations.

First of all, you will need PostgreSQL (I'm pretty sure Mysql will work too, but I just don't have trac instance with this backend). SQLite lacks string functions required to extract comment number from "parent.reply" pair in the database (and you want your link to go directly to unread comment, not just to a ticket, right?).

Then, you must dump all _description, description_ and _description_ fields from your report (they are hidden in default reports anyway). Reason: we will need this field to provide link to "unread comment". The only way to include another link to report row is generating wiki markup in description field. At least, I found no other way (in Trac 0.10.4).
