How to prevent a specific field from being included in notification emails

I'm trying to avoid having a sensitive field be sent to assignees and watchers on issue creation by email. It's a custom field and looking at the template in the batcher plugin, there is this segment (templates/email/batch/html/IssueUpdateBatcher-content.vm) that seems to loop through all of the changed fields:

                                            #foreach($update in $fieldGroup.updates)

                                                <tr class="field-update">

                                                    <td valign="top" align="left" class="updates-diff-label">



                                                    <td valign="top" align="left" class="updates-diff-content">


                                                        #if($update.iconUrl)<img src="$update.iconUrl" height="16" width="16" border="0" />&nbsp;#end$update.diff





Is there a way to set this up to avoid a certain field, either in the batcher template or in the Jira UI?

I'm using a self hosted Jira 8.5

Velocity doesn't seem to have a continue statement, but perhaps you can wrap the whole thing in an if statement, like this:

#foreach($update in $fieldGroup.updates)

  # if($update.fieldName != "Private Field")

  <tr class="field-update">
