Problem mentioning a user in discussion on work item in Azure DevOps

I'm trying to use Power Automate to update a work item in Azure DevOps and have a problem when I try to mention someone in the discussion view. Azure DevOps does not seem to pick up when I throw a user displayname using"@<displayname>" in that field, using the update work item action i PA. The name of the person I'm mentioning gets posted but isn't converted to a proper mention.


Is there any way around this?
