How to generate notification for IssueLinkCreatedEvent ?

The event IssueLinkCreatedEvent is available within the listener "Send a custom email (non-issue events)" but I can't send a notification to the watchers of the link issues.

The event IssueLinkCreatedEvent is not available within the listener "Send a custom email" where I could simply send a notification to related issues watchers.\


I thought about creating a "Custom listener" that would generate a "GenericEvent" on "IssueLinkCreatedEvent". Then, a listener "Send a custom email" would send the email.

Can I create a GenericEvent programatically? What other options do I have?

The issueLinkCreatedEvent won't have an issue object to act on. So the built-in Send Email script won't know which email to send email to.

Your options are either, use the custom scripted listener to send the email:

import com.atlassian.mail.server.SMTPMailServer
import com.atlassian.mail.server.MailServerManager
import com.atlassian.mail.Email
import com.atlassian.mail.MailException
import com.atlassian.mail.MailFactory
import com.atlassian.mail.queue.SingleMailQueueItem
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def recipients = 'xxx@yyy'
def subject = 'whatever subject you want'
def body = 'contruct your own body'
def plain = true //or false if you want to include html in body

def mailServerManager = ComponentAccessor.mailServerManager
def mailServer = mailServerManager.defaultSMTPMailServer

if (mailServer && !MailFactory.settings.sendingDisabled) {
def email = new Email(recipients)
if(plain) {
} else {
try {
def item = new SingleMailQueueItem(email);
Date today = new Date()
return "Success"
} catch (MailException e) {
log.error e.message
} else {
log.warn "Sending is disabled"


Or, as you suggested, use the custom listener to fire a new event using the isseEventManager

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def issueEventManager = ComponentAccessor.issueEventManager
issueEventManager.dispatchEvent(eventId,issue, user,false)
