    Notifications for @mentions via API not working


      We've developed a custom UI as a workaround to the 100 comment limitation (threaded conversations reverting to flat view (chronological order). This makes it impossible to view/follow contextual conversations when the comments display in different pages. The custom UI allows users to see comments in context (threaded view) and and also add comments--but we're having difficulties getting the @mention notification/inbox alert to generate for comments added via API.

      We're followed the instructions here: https://developers.jivesoftware.com/api/v3/cloud/rest/index.html#mentions and tried different variations discussed in this thread: https://community.jivesoftware.com/message/1488199.


      While the @mentions display correctly within the instance, the inbox alerts/notifications aren't generating in the mentioned user's inbox.


      We're only looking to @mention people, not places or content. The API posts the comments as the user. For example, I am posting the comment via custom UI and mentioning Stephanie Standring. In the instance, the comment is posted by me and the @mention icon appears next to Stephanie's name, but no notification appears in her inbox. Happy to share the exact code if it will help.
