Some users unable to mention in comments


I have recently noticed that some users seem to b e unable to @ tag other users in JIRA comments. It is not related to the browser, or the project or who the user is trying to tag, the problem seem to be specific to the user that is trying to mention other people. Have anyone experienced this?

I believe you need the "Browse Users" permission to be able to @mention someone. Does your user have this permission?

Where can i edit the "Browse Users" permissions? It seems to be buried somewhere that I cannot find.

Thanks, this helped me today.

This answer helped me too, thank you!

perfect answer thanks!

I have a user in jira-users that has browse user permission granted. Some of the users in this group are able to @ mention other and some don't. Even I myself can't do this altough I am an admin.

Solved, I had to grant permission to project so user could be mentioned

Click on 'Jira settings'

click 'user management'

on the 'users' menu option (Should be default) search for the user in question

press 'add group'

search for the group you want to add and boom, youre done.
