When I edit a username, comment mentions do not update

After renaming an existing user, JIRA does not update the reference/mention to that user in comments. Is this intentional or, as part of a site re-index, could JIRA automagically update the username as mentioned in the comment.

Hi Chris,

It seems this issue is related to JRA-35102.

Is there a workarround besides replacing all the stuff in the database ?

 

 

Cheers, Tihomir.
