We implemented the new service desk with its own notification scheme. For the event, 'Issue Created', for example, we added a notification for the reporter to get an email, and then added a group of administrators to be notified as well. Only the reporter gets the notification. We tested this for several event types and see that only the first notification item works, and any subsequent notification item set for the same event do not get an alert.
How can all items receive the same email?
@Judd Garratt I'm having a very similar issue. I'm using JIRA Service Desk and none of the "Request Participants" get email notifications. I'm using mostly out of the box configurations and when I look at the "Recipient options" on this article: https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/managing-service-desk-notifications-732528936.html, and look at the ones I have available, I'm only seeing 2 options on my side: http://dp.zachlanich.com/QRua - How can I fix this?
So maybe you are being held up in the same way I was: After I, as an agent, created an issue, I did not realize that the Request type field would need completion. It was defaulting to "No match." Once I had a valid value in Request type (e.g. Get IT help), anyone I added to Request Participants would get a notification. No Request type, no notification.
Are you asking about Service Desk notifications or about JIRA notifications?
Service Desk sends custom email notifications to the reporter of an issue created through the Customer Portal. These notifications are triggered when the issue is created, when the issue is resolved, when another user makes a reporter-visible comment, and when there is a change in 'status name' visible to the reporter through the Portal.
When an issue is created through the Customer Portal, Service Desk suppresses emails that would be sent to the reporter by the project's notification scheme. In this case the reporter is also prevented from becoming an auto watcher on the issue to prevent duplicate notifications.
So a seperate group of users won't recieve the custom Service Desk emails. However, standard JIRA notifications should be sent to users aside from the reporter according to the project notification scheme. Is it standard JIRA notifications you're failing to recieve?
I apologize for not being clear. I received way too many email notifications when I used the default notification scheme with the service desk. So many emails were received, the users would complain. Because of this I created a custom notification scheme for the service desk to use. Maybe its the notification scheme that I need help with, and not the service desk after all.
Anyway, in creating the new scheme, I would add a notification for 'Issue Created' and tell the system to email the reporter. It only allows me to add a single email target at a time so I have to add another email target to 'Issue Reported' for administrators. I add a group , Jira Administrators, and then test it by loggin in as a user and creating an issue. The reporter gets a notification but the administrators do not. How can I ensure all are notified?
All of a sudden, with no changes, and over the weekend, it started working. We received a flood of notifications, and they are coming in fast now. The troubleshooting post didn't help me solve it but did help me reduce the number of notifications received. Thsi issue is resolved. Thanks for your help.
We are using Atlassian Cloud Service Desk. We have now created custom Notification Scheme for all Service Desks, since also our customers complained they are receiving too much emails and it is hard to pick the one which is relevant. Below is our custom scheme
I don't know what I am doing wrong but notifications with above configuration works in testing like so
Also, the change in workflow status sent notification and since there was no possibility to disable that from Notification Scheme, I had to rename both "Waiting for support" and "Waiting for customer" statuses to "Open". This is really inconvenient.
Ok, if i understood correctly, Notification Scheme which is assigned to Service Desk project has no effect for customers but only for users with JIRA licences.
When opening settings "Administration" -> "Add-ons" -> "Service Desk" -> "Configuration" -> "Notifications" I can either set the service desk notifications on or off.
...but there is no way you can configure customer notification scheme? So, either customers receive too much notifications or none?
