Hey folks, i hope all is well.
On submission of an intake through my Confluence form, a JIRA is being created. When the JIRA is created, the submitter is being aligned to the Watcher and Reporter roles
Is there an ability through the IFTTT that upon the JIRA creation Anonymous is leveraged in both roles? I am trying to prevent the submitter from getting updates as they are made in JIRA.
Thanks in advance
When you use built-in ConfiForms IFTTT actions to create/update Jira issues then the connection to Jira is set up using an application link you have. And that means it is created in the credentials of the user who submits the form.
You can probably set up some automation on Jira side to "remove the reporter" or set up a web service connection using some service account to your Jira and use that through ConfiForms IFTTT to create Jira issues (so the reporter will be your service account user).
The easiest I think would be to set up some automation on Jira side to remove reporter when issue gets created
I guess it is important for me to understand why these folks are getting emails from JIRA. Is it because they are the Reporter, or that they have been added a Watcher? Maybe both?
Unfortunately i do not have access to any admin or setup within JIRA. Any changes i can implement would be through the confiform itself.
If you dont set the watchers then the user creating the issue is not added as a watcher, but as a reporter only (unless you have some custom automation rules).
And this is why they get a message later or on issue creation.
And reporter field is populated as a "standard workflow" - Jira sets the reporter to the user's account who has reported the issue. You need an automation to change that on Jira side (nothing to do on ConfiForms side, unless you switch to "web service" request IFTTT to create an issue using service account)
Hey Davin, unfortunately i do not. My organization has the platform setup as a service, but they manage all of the back ends tools, API's etc. My control is limited to what i can do via confiform/confluence.
Are the emails firing to these folks based on them being the reporter or because they are a watcher, Maybe both?
