Reminder on removing support for user names in wiki text in Jira

In October 2018 we announced that user names were deprecated, in line with the removal of user names across all our products. See for more information.

Going forward Jira cloud will remove support for turning wiki text containing user names into user mentions.

Old unsupported wiki text user mention format (with user names):


Current wiki text user mention format (with Atlassian Account IDs):


(Note that the wiki editor in Jira already writes user mentions using Atlassian Account IDs for you.)

Thank you for the update! @aagrawal2 :+1:
