I don't think this is possible, but I'm hoping someone might have a different opinion, or a workaround way to do it.
Is it possible to have a job auto-assign to someone based on them being "@'d" in a comment.
So if I say
"@person heres a question about this thing"
it autoassigns the issue to /@person
If you have the ScriptRunner app installed you could create a listener tied to the comment event.
However, if you have the notification scheme configured to notify the assignee when an issue is assigned to him, why not simply do that rather than comment and @-mention him?
