Hi,

 

I have been getting tagged in Comments on certain tickets in JIRA recently so I can keep a running tab of requests for enhancements that can't be handled in tickets.

 

While I try to keep up with every notification, I want to make sure I didn't miss anything. Is there a way to search for every comment where I am tagged?

Hi @Lauren Mazza. Select your profile photo from the Confluence navigation, then select Tasks. You will be able to look at all tasks (@ mentions) and filter by those you have created versus those you have assigned and complete versus incomplete.

@Lauren Mazza: unfortunately the only way I could imagine to solve it is investigate/evaluate the Jira-Task report macro in Confluence if a filter on mentions is possible (there used to be a CQL option wich could be used for it). Apart from this mentions imho are broken in Atlassian tools.

Hi @Elizabeth Barr ,

unfortunately a very common problem with Atlassian staff in the later years.

Some clarification:

1. Lauren asked for mentions in JIRA tasks and no on your Confluence tasks list You wont see any JIRA task (at least not on Confluence cloud...) So a task list is only available with the Jira task macro.

2. The request for mentions in (Confluence) comments is something discussed with Atlassian since at least 12 years now. No, @mentions (which is something different from a /TASK @SOMEONE) are not searchable anywhere currently. This is true for mentions in pages, mentions in comments and mentions in inline-comments alike. Currently the only(!) cexception is "mentions" in CONFLUENCE-TASKS. As such, feasibility of mentions is more of a burden, since users quite often use this incomplete "feature" and wonder why the mentioned user has no idea of having been mentioned. The only "report" is the event-log. If a user receives many events though, out of luck...

check this, maybe: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/Search-pages-based-on-Mentions/qaq-p/116156 

And while this feature has been discussed for at least 12 years, there is a (younger) "suggestion" in your list on that: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-71883

Regards, Bernd.

Ah, I see. The question was listed under Products > Confluence so I assumed it was in reference to Confluence.

It haven't been fixed yet. There is not a reliable option to list all mentions in Confluence. Also the option "Select your profile photo from the Confluence navigation, then select Tasks" does not work properly, it does not list all of your mentions and it's out of date always.
