User Mentions not working

Pedro Felgueiras Community Champion Jan 08, 2018

Suddenly the user mentions stop working on my instance. 

When I'm adding a comment and start making a mention it show "Found no matching users for: XPTO" but when I inspect the page it makes a request to "rest/api/2/user/viewissue/search" and it return valid users. 

 How can i debug this further? 


Best regards,

The problem is fixed. 

There was an error on the JEditor plugin that make the mentions stop working. 

Thanks for letting us know!

Hi Pedro,

  • Is this a Cloud or Server Instance?
  • How many users does this affect?
  • Is XPTO part of your domain name?
  • Are you using AD or an integrated directory only?
  • Do you see any specific errors in the logs when you attempt to find this user?

If this is a JIRA Server instance take a look at Mentions are not working in JIRA applications and follow the suggestions there.  If this is a cloud instance take a look at Mentions and Autocomplete are not working in JIRA Cloud and let me know the results and we'll go from there.

If this is a Server instance, reproduce the issue and provide the log snippet from the time you get the error and we'll go from there.

Hy @Branden McElveen

  • It's a server instance
  • As far as I know it affects all the users
  • XPTO is the username 
  • I'm using AD 
  • I can't find any errors. No in the catalina.out and on browser console

I will take second look at the link you provide. 

The problem is that i don't find any error. 




It seems like this is still a problem. @Mention don't work

Same here, doesn't seem to work. Is this a known bug?

For us mention works occasionly, more like an "I'm lucky today"-feature than a reliable one. No Changes in notification schemes, no access rules Changes, still users don't get notified now and then. Starting to get a big problem here as we use mention feature a lot.
