E-mail notifications on a custom field

Hi friends,

I ask your kind help on resolving an issue with a custom field.

I've created a custom field which did add to the default issue screen.

This field is used to assign the QA responsible, so it gets options from the DB.

The problem we have is, Jira doesn't send notifications to the assignee.

I need to know where or what configuration I should manage to achieve that notification function.

Thanks in advance.

@Gabriel Marcopulos You will need to apply a solution, by creating a custom event and adding it to Notification scheme and triggering this custom event the relevant transition in your workflow on which you assign the QA person to the ticket. The solution will be on the similar lines as provided here by Atlassian for some other scenario:


Hope it helps!

Hi @Taranjeet Singh , thanks for your help!
I tried that, based in your advice, but still doesn't works...
Also, I would like to achieve the same behavior than Assignee field, which sends a specific notification to the assignee e-mail inbox when the assignation is made.

As I understood, this process you recommended me will trigger a notification when a transition it's executed, isn't it?
Again, thank you so much for your help!

@Gabriel Marcopulos For this solution, you will need to have a transition on which you have a transition screen where you have "Assignee" field. An when you assign an issue to QA person during this transition, it will fire a custom event , which should send a notification to Assignee of the issue. (The notification scheme of the project should have this custom event and Assignee present)
