We are creating pages in confluence, one for each deliverable in our product. As we are defining the page (as a small group of people) we are adding @Mentions in the pages as a way of identifying subject matter experts (from the larger group of people). This is convenient because we can associate some people with the content and they get emailed as a heads-up. Later on we would like to run some reports (searches) based on subject matter experts to see which deliverables they are associated with.
I think this will be a big time saver when we start turning our deliverables into JIRA tasks and making formal assignments.
This is really frustrating not having this ability. I have several teams that are using the @mention across different spaces. I need to be able to search for particular users to see where they have been mentioned in order to see what they may have been assigned.
Implementing this issue seems like a no-brainer.
Our team could really use the ability to search current sprint for @mentions in the comment section. Multiple issues of ours in Testing have been commented on, but we have to click on each issue and scroll through to comments to find where we have been mentioned, which seems to defeat the purpose of @mentions altogether.
With the SQL plugin, I have been able to pull a list of my pages that contain a specific string in the content. I wonder if you could do the same thing, where you create a table and just do a sql query for the SME field, returning the name there in your query output.
This could be working indeed!
But as Tom pointed out, I'm not a 100% sure either. Does a search for @username really search for mentions only? Or are there hits in the results where only the username (without being specifically being a mention) is on a page?
Thanks guys. But not really working. I just created a new page with a raw username on it (not an @mention). I can gaurantee that the username was not searchable before adding it to the page (just created the user).
A search for @username returned the search result for the raw username. So, it appears the search field is ignoring the '@' notation.
