Is it possible to create a custom notification for the number of newly created issues passing a set quantity threshold?

Frequently have a variety of escalations that create issues in Jira. They are differentiated by labels. I am wondering if it is possible to create an alert or notification if the number of specific issues created in a 24 hr period exceeds a certain threshold. 

For example: say i have 30 new issues created with the label "bad_data" in a single day. I want to be alerted when the number of new issues with this label surpasses 20 new issues. I would want a notification or alert at this point. Is this possible?

Allie,

Do achieve it you can use Workflow PowerBox and it's Number of Related Issues (links, subtasks or JQL based) condition. If you add it to an automatically executed transition (with auto="true" in your workflow definition). It will send you alert when issue is created.

There is also possibility to use Jelly script. It's free but I think it has been discontinued in JIRA 6.4 and requires some XML knowledge (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA063/Jelly+Tags).

Alternatively, you can:

  • Use the JIRA Subscription which will send data based on the JQL you like 
  • Create a post-function send custom email with a condition on what you like

Based on your requirements, you can use option# 2
