Hi @Pravin 

I think you're using the API v3 version of mentioning users while calling the v2 endpoint!

Hi @Prince Nyeche ,

Thanks for your response 

Is there any API in V2 to mention user in comment ?

Hi @Pravin 

I believe in v2 for servers you can use this format

curl -D- -u admin:adminxyz -X POST 
--data '{"body": "Hi [~XYZ]"}'
-H "Content-type: application/json"
