Enable email notification

Hi All,

I'd like to test a new email tmeplate for the user creation event. But I don't know how to switch on email sending in my TEST environment? Can this email sending switched on only for user creation?

Thanks in advance!

No, I'm afraid email is either on or off globally.

You could simply delete all your notification schemes from test though - that would cut down emails to just system notifications (i.e. user create) and subscriptions (I think there's a way to turn them off too, but I'm not sure)

Hi Nic,

that's a good idea, thank you!

Where can I switch on the email notif.? I remember that it was in the Jira documentation and also remember that it was in a bat file, but don't find it anymore.:(

Can you please help?



Hi Nic,

where can I switch on the email sending function? Somewhere in a bat file??



For testing environment I use this change

diff --git a/bin/setenv.sh b/bin/setenv.sh
--- a/bin/setenv.sh
+++ b/bin/setenv.sh
@@ -21,7 +21,7 @@

 # Uncomment this setting if you want to import data without notifications
-#DISABLE_NOTIFICATIONS=" -Datlassian.mail.senddisabled=true -Datlassian.mail.fetchdisabled=true -Datlassian.mail.popdisabled=true"
+DISABLE_NOTIFICATIONS=" -Datlassian.mail.senddisabled=true -Datlassian.mail.fetchdisabled=true -Datlassian.mail.popdisabled=true"

Hi Jozef,
