I want to slightly change the default email notification of JIRA service desk. Is there any where we can edit it?

I want to remove the below message which trigger whenever any request get closed.

"This message is automatically generated by JIRA Service Desk.
If you think it was sent incorrectly, please contact your JIRA administrators.

Hi Kumari,


You will need to edit 1 or more .vm files for this

You can find more information on https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/customizing-email-content-802592932.html



Thank you Dave. This is very helpful.


And then redo the modification when you upgrade I think

Hi Dave,

I was looking for .vm files which have been used in JIRA Service desk (by following the above link) for default notification so that i can edit it as per our requirement. But it seems like we can edit the notification for JIRA tool instead of JIRA Service desk.

Please guide me to perform the changes in JIRA service Desk notification.


Hi Kumari,

you actually can edit issue driven notifications in JIRA Service Desk Cloud and JIRA Service Desk Server (since Version 3.3.0). If you want to edit the footer of your email notifications you have to edit the HTML and plain text templates.

For more information please the following documentation for Cloud:


This is the documentation for Server 3.3.0:



Unfortunately it is not possible to edit notifications regarding account events (e.g. account creation, agent invitations, ...)

Kind regards


Actually, we are using JIRA Service Desk 2.6 version ; And Client currently don't wants to upgrade it to 3.3 version. And i don't find this feature in 2.6 version.

Thanks for your help.
