Is there a way to bulk/mass tag people in a ticket using new jira?

As the last resort, I've been using the old Jira view to quickly tag a group of people in a Jira ticket. The old Jira view allowed for people to be tagged using prefix "~"

I have a macro on my local machine that saves this plain text

Is there a way to do this using the new Jira? The new Jira uses "@"  as a prefix, but when I paste this snippet, no one actually gets tagged.

Hi Marvin,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

The new editor uses the Markdown editor where the prefix ~ will not work. It was created a bug for that but it was closed because it’s expected. 

I tested here and using @ it won’t work if we save a snippet with a list of users and paste on a comment.

Currently, there is no feature request suggesting the ability to mention multiple users, so please, feel free to raise a feature on (project JRACLOUD) adding more details about why this feature is important for your environment.


Hi @Angélica Luz ,

Thanks for the response. I'll go ahead and leave it as is, it's not super important to have this feature using the new jira labs. In the interim, I'll continue to use the old Jira views :)
