Question about notifications

Hi once again!!


A user reported that he is not getting any notification when:

1. issue is created by a user x

2. somebody select him in the assignee field

3. somebody select him as request participant


I do not know where I can find any solution. I almost read all the post related to notification and none represent what the user explained to me.

Can you help me please?

Thanks in advance,

Hello @Rosana Casilli

Thank you for reaching out.

Can you confirm if the user-facing the problem is a Customer or an Agent in your Jira Service desk?

Basically, Jira Service desk has two separate permission settings for customers and agents, so we must know what is the user access to give you specific steps to troubleshoot it.

Per your description, I believe the user you are talking about is an Agent. If that's the case, consider the information below about each notification problem:

  1. Issue is created by a user x
    The notifications about issues created can be configured under project settings > Notifications, making sure the user is under one of the roles in the Issue created notification:

  2. Somebody select him in the assignee field

    About the Assign notification, it is also configured under Project settings > notifications, so make sure the user is under one of the roles in the Issue assigned notification
  3. Agents should not be added as request participants. The Request participants field was created to add external customers that might also be aware of the issue details, so Agents added to this field will be treated as customers in the Jira system, including for the notifications proposed. Additionally, add the agent as a request participants will cause the problems mentioned in step 1 and 2.

For more details, check the documentation below:
