JIRA automation, how to insert issue key and URL to it Edited

In JIRA automation, I am creating a rule that

The rule needs to add a comment that mentions the user. But it does not work as I want. I want the mention of the reporter, not just their name or username. 

{{issue.reporter.displayName}} , this writes reporter's full name. 

{{issue.reporter}} , this writes reporter's user id in JIRA.

How do I write a mention of reporter so they are notified via JIRA also?


Problem number 2: I want it to send an email and in the email put the issue URL and issue number. 

example: Please review {{issue.key}} . this shows "Please review projectA-3432". but projectA-3432 is not a link. How can I make it a link?

Try this: [~accountid:{{issue.reporter.accountId}}]

That should cause a mention to go to the reporter. 

@John Funk thank you for help.

I this: [~accountid:{{issue.reporter.accountId}}]

I see the below in the comment: 





If I remove the brackets from my automation  ~accountid:{{issue.reporter.accountId}},  I get just:



As you can see issue.reporter.accountId is my login ID but the ~accountid does nothing.

I tried that the results was @~accountid:nman

Sorry for the delays - I would go ahead and submit a support request:

PS, I am not getting any email notifications when the thread is updated and I am watching the thread and I have checked my spam folder in my email box. 

Something is broken in notification in community. I do not think I have received any notification emails for months.
