There is no way to search via JQL to get accurate results in regards to issues / comments were a user has been @Mentioned For example, users have noted that you can sometimes get results for an advanced JQL query such as
However the ~ operator is unsupported for use with that function per Advanced searching - functions reference - Atlassian Documentation.
Also trying to search with a more basic set of terms like
can sometimes return results, but in the current state of Jira Cloud it is not providing consistent expected results (sometimes you see @ mentions here but not always), and given the recent changes to usernames in Atlassian Cloud, there does not appear to be a way to search via JQL for message content that includes @mentions
Creating a JQL function that can search for @ Mentions would be ideal
Or extending the comment field to be searchable by user accounts mentioned within it
It would be very helpful to be able to search, filter, and generally organize issues where you have been mentioned directly.
Would like to be able to create a filter to track my AT mentions
