Is it possible to stop sending webhook events for a particular user?

Hi,

Is it possible to stop a webhook triggering if the event was caused by a particular user?

The webhook post contains the user json block so I can do the check in my consuming code however I wondered if perhaps there was a way to avoid it even being sent in the first place.

Thanks,

John

I think you can not disable it for a particular user on Jira side. You should do the logic on the receiver side like you wrote.

Hi @Alexey Matveev,

Thank you for confirming I will leave my existing logic as it is :).

Thanks,

John

Hi John,

As long as you have access to the JIRA administration console you can disable the Webhook.

 

  • Choose > System. Select Advanced > Webhooks to open the Webhooks page, which shows a list of all existing webhooks.
  • Click Disable or Delete

 

Cheers,

Branden

@Branden McElveenI guess your solution would disable the webhook for all users not for a particular user.

Hi Alexey,

From his description it sounded like he may have wanted to disable that one webhook all together:

I wondered if perhaps there was a way to avoid it even being sent in the first place.

The entire webhooks platform would not be disabled, only that one webhook:

  1. Log in as a user with the JIRA Administrators global permission.
  2. Choose > System. Select Advanced > Webhooks to open the Webhooks page, which shows a list of all existing webhooks.
  3. Here's a few tips on using this page:
    • Click the summary of the webhook in the left 'Webhooks' column to display the details of the webhook. You can edit, delete and disable it via the details panel.
    • Deleting a webhook removes it permanently. If you just want to prevent it from firing, disable the webhook instead.

Cheers,

Branden

Hi @Branden McElveen,

Thanks for your response but as @Alexey Matveev says I was looking for a solution that would allow the webhook to only fire on certain user events, not for it to be disabled completely.

Thanks,

John

Thanks for following up.  I read it as not sending the webhook at all, however, I'm glad Alexey was able to correctly asses what you were trying to do and provide the assistance needed!

Thanks @Alexey Matveev!
