How to mention a user on an JIRA issue

  1. Create, edit or comment on an issue.
  2. In the issue's Description or the Comment field, type '@' and then the first few characters of the JIRA user's username or part or all of their full name (registered with their JIRA user account).
    (info) As you start typing, a list of suggested users will appear in a dropdown list below the field (if you have the Browse Users global permission).
  3. Complete typing the JIRA user's username or choose from the list of suggested users in the dropdown list.
    (info) When you submit the field, JIRA will send that user an email message indicating that you mentioned them on that issue.
