We have bought lately "JIRA Email This Issue" (JETI) lately to support the requirements of one of our customers:
I have now tried some time to find a good (KISS) configuration, but the best I could find is:
I tried to not use at all templates, but then the whole thing does not work.
What I don't like about the solution is:
I tried to use the default, but that takes all the time the same template, which does not fit well.
Is there a better solution available?
Let me answer your points.
Define for each relevant event type a template
It not necessary to define different templates for each event types. You can create one template and associate it with the Context. Then if you don't select a template in the Event configuration page, JETI will use the template selected in the Context.
Define one notification scheme for that project.
JETI Notification schemes like JIRA's ones are reusable. You simply associate multiple Contexts with the same Notification. This means no duplication of Notification schemes is necessary.
Register all events (one by one) to the template, and include in each notification event the list of users to be informed
I have duplicated the list of recepients.
This is true. You'll have to add recipients for each event. This not more cumbersome than what you must be used to with JIRA Notification Schemes. But I agree it would be easier if you could group events and configure them once. Please note that there is the Default event that matches all events not yet added to the Notification scheme. It may help you a bit.
I have create a feature request ticket for you that you can watch for progress.
This is how you can configure JETI at the moment.
one template and associate it with the Context
I have tried that, but that meant that the same template is used for different events, so I get the same information (like Issue created) for different events. At least I did not find the right approach here. I will try it again to ensure that I have understood it well enough ...

which is true, but we need it at the moment only for one project.
Please note that there is the Default event that matches all events not yet added to the Notification scheme.
I have tried that as well, but was not content with it. I will try it again, with a play project where the normal notification of JIRA is switched off.
I have now used a play project, and configured it the following way:
However, I get now on every change the same email, which is taken from "Create" template. So I will stick to my solution ...
Thank's for adding the request ticket, I think it is a reasonable one.
