The watchers are getting numerous email notifications when the description of a JIRA is updated. I would like the notification to be set as optional so the person saving the JIRA can decide if the email notifications are sent. Is this possible? If so can someone please point me in the right direction.
No that's not possible. It would also work against the watching functionality. If a user decides to watch an issue, this issue is so important for him that he wants to be notified on every single update.
If the updater would be able to suppress the notification, watching an issue would make no sense.
Yes, you're right. In Confluence you are able to to that.
But I don't know a way to do that in Jira. Of course you can adjust the notification schemes, so watchers aren't notified by certain events but there's only one "Issue updated"-Event that will be fired, if a description is changed. And I think, you won't disable this in general.
You can remove watchers from "Issue Commented" if that helps, but it will not disable the notifications coming from updating the description.
...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
