Slack notifications for my tickets but exclude MY own actions

I've setup Jira Slack notifications for just my tickets. I use JQL assignee = my.username and it works great.

However, I want to go one step further and stop my actions creating notifications. For example: when I comment on my own ticket, I don't want a slack notification. But if anyone else comments, then I do want a slack notification.

Same goes for all other actions (eg: transitioned, updated, etc)

Anyone know how to do this with JQL? 

I tried  currentUser() != my.username (and various combinations of that) but couldn't get it to work.

Hi Ben,

Unfortunately there's no clean way to do this with JQL currently. We do have an open feature request that addresses what you're trying to do with this filter: API-80: Personal Jira Notifications in Slack .

Keep an eye on that issue as we've had a lot of discussion around what you're asking for. I'll bring this feedback up with the product manager for the integration!


Thanks Daniel

Will keep an eye on that feature request. is about personal notifications, not about excluding own modifications.

Like # people like this

I tried to use JQL: updated != currentLogin() but it did not work (update: it is for date, indeed). 

It looks like we need 1 extra field, e.g. lastUpdater or modificationUser here.
