We've recently upgraded to JIRA5
With the new @mentions feature, we get email notifications when mentioned.
I thought I saw a way to display these on the dashboard but I can't find any way - and that seems really odd not to be able to
So - is there any way to display on my dashboard my most recent mentions? (where I was the one being @mention'ed)
Unfortunately this doesn't work. Using just this part:
comment ~ currentUser() and updatedDate >= -7d
Includes issues which don't mention me - I can't tell why they're included at all.
Hopefully will expose a way of allowing this soon - they've just made it available as a list in the notifications visible in Jira cloud.
I to am also receiving nothing from this JQL search, even though I know I am mentioned in at least 2 different tickets.
I have tried removing the time modifier off it and attempted each part separately (i.e. comment ~ currentUser()), but no luck.
Does anyone else know if this has changed with the latest release of the Cloud Version?As this is still the main thread that comes up when searching for a solution.
::EDIT:: It looks like the ~ operator is no longer supported for currentUser():
If you're using Jira Cloud, this current solution doesn't appear to work. There is an alternative I found (aside from the Notifications section). Whilst it isn't a direct replacement as it's per user rather than logged in user - you could try:
^ Seems to do the trick.
Remember if you do add the "UpdatedDate" part - this isn't just comments made within the last 7 days, it's any update made to the issue.
This JQL can be interpreted as "show me issues, that have been updated during past 7 days if they have comments, that mention me". This means you might have been mentioned ages ago in the issue, that is currently being worked on - and it would still fall in the filter output.
To my knowledge, as of April 2020 there is no addon-free solution for this.
This is how I did it: Create a new search, in Text search field I just put the @[MyUsername]. I can use other parameters also, like unresolved, date paramters, etc. and it shows me everything I am mentioned in. I then use the Filter results gadget on my dashboard to show me every mention that I want to see.
Nothing to vote and comment on. The issue is closed coz "it is not something we will prioritise on our roadmap in the next few years". What? Why? Managing notifications through emails is incredibly tedious for a whole number of reasons. I am sure this feature would be very useful for a great many users.
OK, so if this is not being prioritised... How can we find what we have been mentioned in?
I don't appear to have any emails or notifications telling me that someone has mentioned me in a ticket. Nor do I have an easy way of filtering tickets to show those I have been mentioned in.
I love the idea of having mentions but unless we can filter by them or get to them quickly does it not make them redundant?
You can try this plugin:
It will filter those ticket you were mentioned in, and haven't replied, based on time when you were mentioned, not when ticket was last time updated.
Hey. I'm new here. I saw that the query brings more results if you try to search for the accountid in parallel with the currentUser())
(comment ~ currentUser()) ORDER BY updated DESC - brings 20 results
(comment ~ "accountid:123e8w8q09q9q99w992ie") or (comment ~ currentUser()) ORDER BY updated DESC - brings 100 results
You can identify the account ID if you edit a comment where you were tagged.
I'll try to identify if these 100 results are actually all the tags I had in this project and come back.
Nevertheless, it's a workaround and it can be used only for one user at the time, where as the currentUser()) could've been used in a dynamic dashboard for any team member.
This 'works' - the problem is that if someone mentioned you on a comment 5 weeks ago, and anyone else updates the ticket in any way, it shows back up on the list.
So, while this is a bandaid for seeing tickets where you were mentioned, it does not give support for a convenient way to grab attention when you have recently been mentioned in a new ticket, because this filter is just noise now.
Exactly. Well for now i am using rules in my outlook. I've created a rule there, anyone mentions me that email is diverted in another folder. So for now i am keeping track that way. I hope Jira finds a way out for this. either notifications or something?
Oh yeah they have this notification thing in their Jira app though.
Just arrived at this issue myself.
Annoying the iOS app has a tab for recent mentions but the desktop cloud version doesn't 😣.
Have tried creating a dashboard gadget as advised by Atlassian here /Jira-questions/My-At-Mention-notifications-are-in-the-iOS-app-Where-are-these/
Will feed back how successful it is.
Ridiculously late reply, sorry.
I don't think I ever got the above to work quite how I liked but the good news is that the notifications view (bell icon) in the sidebar fulfils our needs nicely.
Its working, as suggested by Stephen_Wright
you could try:
^ Seems to do the trick.
So I've just tried this @Mike James with the following:
"Request participants" = currentUser() OR comment ~ 5e95bd3963acd40c3f8b7d50 ORDER BY created DESC
Where the character string is my ID from the URL in my profile
This shows any issues where I am a participant or where I am mentioned
