is there an option to run an automation rule whenever a user is mentioned and to reuse the user mentioned as a variable into the actions section?

Best, Martin

Hi @Martin,

Try to use the combination of the trigger Issue commented and this Advanced compare condition:

First value: {{comment.body}}
Condition: contains regular expression
Regular expression: \[\~.*?\]

To get the username mentioned, use this smart value: {{comment.body.match("(\[\~.*?\])").remove("[~").remove("]")}}
It will find [~username] in a comment body and remove brackets with the symbol ~, so I'll get only the username.
