@Mentioning someone in comment automatically adds them as participant


Is it possible to automatically add some as participant on issue if you @mention them in comment ? 


At the moment when I @mention someone in the comment they dont get added by default you have to manually add them

Hi @Michael

this would need some tests with automation - in case you have the time and want to learn it could be a great opportunity.

There was something similar from Community a user has built:

Apparently, you would need to adapt good parts so, for example, the action is to put the mentioned user to Watcher/Request Participants and so on.


@Daniel Ebers cheers for link. I will do some testing
