Add issue description to batched email notifications


is it possible to add the system fields like description and comments field to batched email notifications?

I have tried this in the Velocity File IssueUpdateBatcher.vm (as described in

$header.projectName / $header.issueKey #if(!$header.issueState.deleted && $header.issueStatus && $[$]#end


but get no result in the sent mail (except for issueKey).

Hi Christina,

If the description is edited or a comment is added I believe it will be included in the batched email. 

If you need an easy way to customize notifications you can use a third party app like Notification Assistant for Jira. However, we don't support notification batching at this time.
