Automation for Jira: Can i Edit a Comment of an Issue



I would like to encourage the employees to address groups. For example, @cyadmin. For this I would like to check if a comment was created, if the shortcut @cyadmin is included and if so, I would like to replace in this @cyadmin with the shortcuts of our admins. Is that possible?
