JMWE - how to mention user?

Hello. In one of my post function I need to add mention to user in comment with notification to that user. I tried to use it like that:

@{{ issue.fields.reporter.displayName }} xxxxxx


but it's not working like a mention.

because the only supported prefix is now "accountid:" (not "accountId:" anymore)
