Hi Moses,

There's a pretty clear explanation in Joe Pitt's answer here:

Let me know if you still have questions and I'll do my best to answer.


Hello  Sam,

Thanks for answer provided.

This link no longer works. What is a generic event?

A generic event is the event fired by default when Jira has not been told to fire a better one.  They're no different to any other event, other than in name.
