@edwin vasquez I added an edit action and still received a notification.
For some quick background, I'm using automation to transition an issue to the "selected for development" status when an issue is being created. I have a simple checkbox custom field to trigger this on issue creation. So I don't really have a need for an edit component in my automation, however, I added one at the end of my automation and unchecked the email notification checkbox in the edit component as discussed above.
Note: I started to get a failure notification since I wasn't editing any field. So I had it edit dummy field and stopped getting the failure notifications,
Although, after doing this I still received a notification that the issue had transitioned to a new state. So I realized that if I were to turn off notifications for issues I'm watching or I'm the reporter of (here /secure/ViewPersonalSettings.jspa#emailpreferences) then I don't get the notification. However, that is a global setting and will apply to ALL issues rather than just the ones that the automation runs on. I obviously don't want to set that setting.
I think I'm getting this "transition" notification b/c I'm not the actor of the issue. And it doesn't appear there is a way to change that. So I'm thinking I'm stuck, however, it sounds like others have solved this. So if you have any thoughts I'd really appreciate it.
