I have been toying around with Portfolio and have made a few hundred changes while I test out different scenarios. I don't want to send out a mass email with a few hundred updates, so is it possible to commit these changes to update JIRA without sending an email (similar to the bulk change functionality)?
The emails sent on commit are going to reflect the settings of your Notification Scheme on the connected projects to the modified issues, and you would need to identify the events triggering the notifications and reduce the traffic for those events as needed for your commit.
You could temporarily disable these notifications with one of the methods described in the following posts to get around this, one describes fully disabling email temporarily, the other is a temporary scheme with relaxed notifications:

Please add a vote to to show your interest to help bump up the priority as covered in the "Implementation of New Features Policy" and if you have any additional feedback please drop a comment on the feature request as well.
@Earl McCutcheon Done but again it's been open for two years and no change.
How on earth are other companies doing this with Portfolio at a bulk scale for enterprises without complaining though, the votes on the issue and conversation is so low.....
