How to notify me when only epic issues was created?

Hello, friends!

I want to receive some notifications (by email or any others) when anyone creates issue type of epic.
May be there is any extra configuration for this in settings area?

There are a lot of ways to receive this information. The one of the simplest solution:

1. Create and save new filter with JQL:

created > -15m AND issuetype = Epic

 2. Create new Filter subscription:

No, they're issues, like any other, as far as notifications are concerned.

But you can do it. 

  • Copy the workflow you currently have for Epics, so that you have a new one just for Epics. 
  • Associate that workflow with Epics in the workflow scheme. 
  • Go to Admin -> Issues -> Events, and add a custom one called something like "Epic created"
  • Go to the Epic workflow and edit it
  • Look for the "create" transition's post functions
  • Change the "fire event" post-function to fire "Epic Created"
  • Save the edited workflow
  • Go to the project's notification scheme and change who needs to get the "Epic Created" email (you probably want to add in everyone who currently gets "issue created" as well)

Hi Sergey,

I have seen 3 way to solve your request:

1. You can use this plugin for faster customise notification

1.1. You need set jql query like "issuetype=Epic and project=A"

1.2. Then click action notify about this created event.

2. You can set post function in your workflow for Epic, send notification.

I hope this manual will help you

3. If you have scriptrunner you can write own listener or post  function with super cusomisation for crated epic .


Have a nice day!

Awesome plugin! Thank you! I'll try it! 

I've done it! :)

I just create web hook for slack with this configuration. Turned out better than I expected!
