G'day Atlassian community!
My name is Abhinaya Sinha and I'm a product manager for Jira. I've some exciting news to share with you on Jira notifications.
First, we're pleased to announce that you can now manage personal notification settings in Jira directly from any email that you receive from Jira.
Second, we've started work on:
At the bottom of any email sent from Jira, you will now see a "Manage notifications" link. Clicking on this link will take you to the relevant section of your personal Jira settings. Note, personal Jira settings can be accessed manually by clicking your profile avatar on the bottom left-hand side > Settings. However, you will be able to directly get to it by clicking on "Manage notifications" link at the bottom of any email sent from Jira.
From here, you can control the amount of email you get from Jira for 4 specific scenarios:
By default, you'll get email updates for the above kinds of issue activity. But you now have the ability to control these directly from Jira emails. It is worth noting that these settings are your personal Jira settings. They apply uniquely to you, and only you, and for all your Jira projects. The images, below, visually depict a Jira email with "manage notifications" link as well as "email notification preference on your personal Jira settings page.
We are working on the ability for you to turn off/turn on all Jira email notifications. In addition to the 4 scenarios mentioned above, this includes all project-level notifications that might have been setup by your Jira admin. And just like 'manage your Jira notifications', these apply uniquely to you, and only you, across all of your Jira projects. However, there are some notable exceptions that this feature, when shipped, won't handle. These include:
You might know that Jira admins can use notification schemes to customize notifications for Jira classic projects. However, notifications cannot be configured for Jira next-gen projects. We are excited to inform that we've started work to address this shortcoming. Once this feature is shipped, admins of next-gen projects will be able to configure who to notify (specific users) and what to notify them about (events/triggers).
We, at Atlassian, are committed to improve the Jira notification experience and believe these features are important steps in that journey. As always, we'll be happy to receive any feedback and comments you might have.
