How do I mention a team member in an adaptive card that is sent to MS Teams?

I see the syntax in several places, and I am able to send the card to the channel, but the user's name does not notify them, nor does their user information pop-up when I hover over their username.

{  
    "type":"message",  
    "attachments":[  
        {  
        "contentType":"application/vnd.microsoft.card.adaptive",  
        "contentUrl":null,  
        "content":{  
                "$schema": "https://adaptivecards.io/schemas/adaptive-card.json",  
                "type": "AdaptiveCard",  
                "version": "1.2",                  
                "body": [{  
                        "type": "TextBlock",  
                        "text": "Hi <at>UPN</at>! \nThe latest build of ${currentBuild.fullDisplayName} has failed. \nPlease take a look.",  
                        "wrap": true  
                }],  
                "msteams": {  
                    "entities": [  
                        {  
                            "type": "mention",  
                            "text": "<at>UPN</at>",  
                            "mentioned": {  
                                "id": "8:orgid:flow-get-user-profile-v2-id-output",  
                                "name": "UPN"  
                            }  
                        }  
                    ]  
                }  
            }  
        }  
    ]  
}  

What does the ID actually need to contain? Is there other information lacking in the documentation that I need to include here?

    Hi @Sarah Edwards Kladstrup ,

    In my experience, to include a mention in an Adaptive Card your apps to include the following elements:

    1.<at>username</at> in the supported adaptive card elements

    2.The mention object inside of an msteams property in the card content, which includes the Team user id of the user being
    mentioned.

    For more reference here:
