I used Jira 3.5.2 to connect on Jira cloud with base_auth

How can I add a comment mentioning the user "@username" with "jira.add_comment"?

Hi @Eduardo Rodrigues

welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Jira converts every @mention from the editor into a markup like this


So, if you want to mention the same user all the time, you can get their accountid and replace everything after [~accountid: with your account id.
If you need help how to get the accountid, you can

  1. go to an issue where the desired user is assignee or reporter (or in some other field)
  2. open and replace the instance identifier and your issue key.
  3. In the JSON response, search for the assignee or reporter and copy their account id.

Hope this helps,
