Set comment Author using Atlassian SDK Edited

Is it possible to set author of a new comment using Atlassian SDK? I tried following but didn't work


JiraInstance = Jira.CreateRestClient("<url>", "<user>", "<password>");

Atlassian.Jira.Comment c = new Atlassian.Jira.Comment();

c.Body = "my comment from code";

c.Author = "<user name>";

JiraInstance.Issues.AddCommentAsync(Key, c)

You cannot set the comment of the author using the REST Api.

Like # people like this

Can we Just add name somewhere in the body of the comment? so it at least shows info about the comment author!! rather than just admin user?

using REST API
