Can you disable notification for transitioning issue via REST?

For editing an issue, there is a parameter for named "notifyUsers" that you can set to false to disable notifications for that edit.  I am wondering if there is a similar option for transitioning issues, for example POST /rest/api/2/issue/{issueIdOrKey}/transitions?notifyUsers=false

Looking at the structure of the request, I would say no.

The edit issue end point specifically lists "NotifyUsers" as a parameter that can be passed along. The "Do Transition" end point has no such property listed.


Thanks for your input!  I thought as much, but just wanted to ask and see what others thought.  I'm thinking I'll just create a small plugin to add a new REST resource for me to call.  

Hi Andrew - did you ever solve a way to do this? 

I'm looking to transition issues using the REST API but without notifying users. 


Unfortunately no.  I just ended up writing a plugin that does the following:

validationResult.getAdditionInputs().put("sendBulkNotification", false);

IssueResult transitionResult = issueService.transition(applicationUser, validationResult);
