JIRA  feature ‘Notifications’ bug

Hi     I met a problem about JIRA  feature ‘Notifications’, hope you can help me.    I configured the notifications in a TEST-project, but I cannot got email no matter where I configure the mail in Group/Single Email Address/Sigle User. I found that the  mail '' didn't send mail to those email address.  Only the reporter / project leader can get the notificeation emails. It's strange. Can you help me?

@蒲彬 the best way to find out the exact problem is you need to go in notification schemes then select the notification helper from there you can find out the exact problem why the email notifications are not been triggered to user.

As you can see, I have tested yet. But I still cannot get the email after someone commented


Fahad Siddiqui Community Leader Sep 21, 2020

@蒲彬  as a test can you try with another user please.

But if the issue 'Request participants' to account roseceshi, I can get the email.

Fahad Siddiqui Community Leader Sep 21, 2020

Ok.. please go under user and roles then in 


and change the settings as below


Issue Commented 

  • All Watchers
  • Current Assignee
  • Reporter
  • User Custom Field Value (Request participants)

Sorry, maybe I did not describe clearly, I mean if I add the test user to 'Request participants', I can get the email, but how can I send the Issue Commented email to some user's email if I didn't add the user to 'Request participants'?

Bear in mind that if the system is configured to send email to a set of people, and one person in the set gets the email and another does not, then the problem is not with Jira.  It is sending the emails to everyone in that set (except maybe the person who triggered it, if they have "email me on my own changes" turned off). 

If a set of people should get an email, then if any of them get the mail, the people who do not have an email system problem, not a Jira one.

Like Fahad Siddiqui likes this

And, I didn't change the setting  as 'User Custom Field Value (Request participants)' before, but I still can get the email when I add the user to 'Request participants', This confused me.

I just want to send the notification email to a group whom the user in  this group was not added to 'Request participants'.

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  I know your mean, but in fact, no one gets the email in that group, not only one 

Ok.  But you said one account does get mail.  That tells me that Jira is able to send the mails.  You'll need to debug people's email accounts to find out where the mails are going.

I use the same email to receive the mail, if I add it to the notification group, it cannot get the mail,but if I add it to 'Request participants',  it can get the mail, so I think my email is no problem, right?

Fahad Siddiqui Community Leader Sep 21, 2020

@蒲彬  do others members of that notification group receive email? 

Yes, that means email is being sent and received.

I think we could do with a view of the rule(s) that say your "same email" should be notified (similar to your screenshot for roseceshi - but two copies - one when they're not getting email and one when they are)

However, there's one other thing to check - can the user see the issue when they are not a participant?

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_  I have some questions. If I add some users to their organization, such as 'test-team',  all users in this organization can get an email when the issue creator or other commented?   right?

But my situation is the user in this organization only gets only one email. And then  Even if someone has commented the user cannot get more email anymore. Bu the way, all users have got notifications. see below images.



the user in organization can get below email, so I thin their email is no problem. 



see below, the user has set get notification already. but still cannot get any notification email


@Fahad Siddiqui no one get email in that group. I can be sure that all mailboxes are normal, because they can get the below email, but after that, even if someone commented,  all members can not get any mail anymore even they have already set 'get notifications.


I'm afraid I am lost now.  You're jumping around between two different ways to notify people and not really answering half the questions we're asking.

Could you step back and tell us only:

  • What notifications you expect a single user to get
  • What type of account that user holds (customer or jira user)
  • What route you are expecting the notification to happen over (is it a service-desk email channel or a Core/Software email notification?)
  • Whether this user is getting any other email from Jira, and what it is if they are
