API calls that change issues not firing emails

I have a series of scripts which utilize the REST API to update JIRA issues based on a number of criteria, but each change is resulting in the "Issue Update" trigger firing and generating quite a bit of email.

Clearly, it's possible to make changes without firing emails - I can do manual "bulk changes" and no emails fire. The question is whether it can be done via the API?

This is not possible with JIRA (out of the box)

You can take a look at the api here:
