Is it possible to add a custom field to the "Issue Created" and "Issue Summary" notifications that are sent out?
I have added (I think) the custom field to;
issuecreated.vm and issuesummary.vm
and restarted the JIRA instance, but the emails do not have this information on them, I added the following lines;
#if ($issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10910")) $stringUtils.leftPad($issue.getCustomField("customfield_10910").name, $padSize): $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10910") #end
You'll need to follow the steps on this link: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Adding+Custom+Fields+to+Email
It will require you to modify some Jira templates.
This will add the custom fields to all Jira emails for all projects.
My company instead decided to create custom listeners which allow us to create project and event specific emails with all the information we want.
I am trying to add a custom field to the 'issue created' template by adding this code:
#if ($issue.getCustomFieldObjectByName("customfield_10100")) >$stringUtils.leftPad($issue.getCustomFieldObjectByName("customfield_10100").name, $padSize): $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10100") #end
where 10100 is the ID of custom field created in JIRA. Unfortunately this solution does not work me, I received email notification without this field.
I am wokring on JIRA v6.4.7
Am I missed something? Please advise.
To add a custom field to the "issue created" email, you have to update the ..../templates/email/text/issuecreated.vm for users receiving text emails AND
....../templates/email/html/issuecreated.vm for users receiving html emails.
html is the default these days.
I ended up creating ...../templates/email/html/includes/fields/mycustomfield.vm and parsed that in the html/issuecreated.vm.
I may be overkill, but it worked for me.
My solution to notify someone when a custom JIRA field is modified is to use the Filter and Subscriptions.
E.g. If I needed a notification sent out whenever our custom field ‘Test Notes’ is updated, I would create a filter such as says ‘Test Notes Updated in last 1 hour’ with following search criteria
"Test Notes" is not EMPTY AND updated > -1h
Next, save the filter. Search your saved filter in Manage Filters. Click Subscribe under Subscriptions column. Add subscription using the on screen options for Recipients, Schedule, Interval etc. If you need one or more people to receive the notifications, create a JIRA group under JIRA User Management options / Groups tab on the left. e.g. jira-testers: Once you add the subscription, that’s it, it is not instantaneous as you are asking it to notify everything updated in last one hour (1h in the filter above) but you can make it so if you want by changing your filter.
