We are in the process of implementing Jira Service Desk (using Jira Server). The notification scheme being used for the event of "Issue Created" comprises the following notifications:
When the portal is used to raise a new request, no-one is receiving an email notification. The following people were involved in the ticket, so I am expecting Person B & C to receive an email.
I have checked and confirmed the following:
I desperately (!!) need to be able to advise Person C (the approver) that there is a request they need to approve. I would also like to advise Person B (the user) that the issue has been raised on their behalf (given they are the reporter, but they are not the one who physically logged the issue).
I am very new to the administrator functions of Jira, so painfully explicit step-by-step instructions would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Welcome to Jira Administration.
The first thing to realize is that when dealing with JIRA Service Desk, there are two completely separate notification systems
The first is the one in Jira core. That is controlled by Notification Schemes, permission schemes etc. They key thing to realize with that one is that you have to have permission to log into jira and see the issue in order to get those notifications. If you do not have a licnese, then nothing you do in there will be relevant.
That of course doesnt work for JSD Customers, who are unlicensed. For Jira Service Desk, there are Customer Notifications. These are configured per project, In the section marked "Customer Notifications"
That is where you set up notifications for your customers including your approvers. Make sure that is all set up. Make sure that the relevant notifications are enabled, and set to send to the right users. There is a particular one for approvers there.
See the link below for more details.
Hope this helps.
Hi! Unfortunately I (and a number of others!) still can't get this to work.
Looking at the customer notifications, the default rule for "Approval Required" has the following properties:
None of the tests I have run result in an email being sent to the approver (I've tested this under several different scenarios including one where the approver is a non-licensed customer and another when they are licensed). The ticket status is definitely showing as "Waiting For Approval"
If I manually generate the "send me a test email", it works. I just can't get it to fire the email from notifications.
As a test, can you set it to send to Approvers and Customer? To make sure that the notification is going out at all.
Also Do you actually have an approval configured? Just being in the status isn't enough. You need to make sure one is configured on that status.
