In JSM we have some custom fields that are auto populated by webhooks based on some info our agents put in the ticket
Organization (JSM Default)
Field 1 (Custom field)
Field 2 (Custom field)
When the Organization field changes, it triggers a webhook,= that then populates Field 1 and 2.
This works really well for us, and saves a lot of time. however, every time the fields are populated, all associated parties get an email that the issue was updated.
Any way I can set our API user to never trigger an email?
Welcome to the community. If you are referring to the system notifications, then you can configure the notification scheme used against your project for the "Issue Updated" event to prevent notification to be sent. (Project settings > Notification)
In general, event notification is associated to the issue and not take into account of the user who triggered the issue updates.
Hope this helps.

An update to a field is an issue update event, so one cannot limit the notification based on field updates.
The only logical thing I can think of is via custom API setup, where you programmatically switch your project's notification to a different scheme where no notification is sent out for ISSUE UPDATE event when your backend process kicked off and update the fields, then after the updates are completed, then switch the original notification scheme back. However, during your process executing time, other normal update event notification in the system against your project will also be affected.
I have ever try it via REST APIs on switching notification scheme against project.
