Does the issue update with HAPI throw an issue update event (and notification)?


I have an scripts that goes through 100 of issues to update a field. I do not want to spam everyone with emails but I cannot find in the documentation if when I use HAPI I can disable emails.

If I have a script similar to this'project = ZOO').each { issue ->
issue.update {
        setCustomFieldValue('CF', value)
Does this throw an issue updated event, and therefore a notification? I see it in the issue history so I guess yes? Is there a way for me to disable the notification?
(I know that I can remove the notification scheme but you used to be able to disable it in the code)

By default the issue update will fire an event and send an email, this however can be opted out, which is a good idea when doing bulk updates.

I see that this option is omitted from our documentation, I'll get that fixed up right away.


import com.atlassian.jira.event.type.EventDispatchOption

issue.update {
setSummary('New summary')

Thanks @Reece Lander [ScriptRunner - The Adaptavist Group] 

I tried looking for anything related to this in the documentation including the JavaDocs. Doesn't seem to be there yet.

Can you help provide some clues as to where in the JavaDocs the various methods available in those update methods (listed as Closure<?>specification ) can be found?

Also, I was not able to identify if there is a similar method for Assets.



def object = Assets.getByKey('KEY-123')
object.update {
setAttribute('AttributeName', 'new value')

All or most ObjectFacade methods have an signature that includes an EventDispatchOption.

It would be nice to be able leverage that via HAPI.
