When reporter adds a comment, assignee not getting email notification


Everything seems setup correctly, still not receiving email!

Jira v8.5.12,

JIRA Service Desk Application v4.5.12

It happens (or doesnt) when Reporter replies to email and when adding it to the issue

The issue updated event has no roles associated with it (is that it?!!!)


it is all Assignees that this happens to

Thank you for responding Ivan!

I'd definitely set up the Issue updated event to check if it's notifying the expected users. I know, in some particular situations, like the email processing, Jira triggers notifications by firing the Issue Updated event instead of Issue Commented, for example.

Hi @Lisa Bruce, I've seen similar issues before. What JSM version are you in? Is it happening when the reporter comments through the customer portal only? What's the setup for your Issue Updated event? What about different assignees? Does the assignee get notifications for other events? Perhaps, answering some of these questions can help us find out the possible reasons you're having the issue.

Hi again Ivan,


it seems strange that the Issue Updated notification must be on for the Issue Commented notification to take place.  Is there another way to do this? 

They are separate lines in the Notification screen
