In Jira Software, our reporter and all watchers only receive notifications for the parent (User Story) when it is updated but when a sub task under the the user story is updated, no notifications are received. Can someone assist in explaining why and what's the solution?
What does the notification scheme say for "issue updated"?
I'm having a similar issue where the sub-task notifications aren't being sent out to Reporters/Watchers. For Issue Created and Issue Updated Events - the Notification scheme includes All Watchers.
Also - the Notification helper within Jira Service Desk does not allow me to test it out using Sub-Task issuetypes - which is quite odd.
I suspect you'll find the people missing emails are not watchers.
I'm sorry, I should have explained my thinking there.
Reading the original question:
"our reporter and all watchers only receive notifications for the parent (User Story) when it is updated but when a sub task under the the user story is updated, no notifications are received"
I suspect the people who are not getting emails are watchers on the story, but not the sub-task. Sub-tasks, while part of their story, are issues in their own right.
The notification scheme only looks at the current issue, not parents or sub-tasks of the current issue.
Then there's the JSM part - JSM won't tell customers about sub-tasks because they're not the requests, and of course, won't notify Agents/developers about issues that aren't the current issue.
ah ok !! No problem !
My issue is that my watchers are on the sub task and when the subtask is updated, we don't received any notification.
It's really a problem of notification of subtask updated and watchers on subtask.
The automation helper don't propose us our subtask that's really odd.
Automation and notification schemes are separate things. Which one are you using for the send of emails from (sub-task) updates?
Hmm. Ok, so "issue updated" will happen on every edit of any issue, irrespective of type, so the next question is to look at who is not getting notified.
Is there anyone who does get notified of edits on sub-tasks? The people who should be getting notified are getting them for edits of story level issues? They can definitely see the issues and sub-tasks in the project? (Obviously, they are not customers. they are full Jira users)
