We have users reporting that they are not getting the notications they expect when @mentioned in comments (Jira Software, data center)
It's an old question but no definitive answers.

Jira only sends one notification per issue change. If you are a watcher, assignee or reporter, those notifications take precedence over the mentions. So I expect the users to get generic issue update emails in those cases.
Annoyingly, it seems that once a user comments they become a watcher and don't get the subsequent mentions they expect so it's perceived as something being broken.
Can anyone confirm or clarify this? Am I right?
