Is there a way to control what changes to a JIRA issue are sent via email when it is being watched? For example, I don't care when time is posted against the issue, or when certain fields are modified, yet I do want to know when comments are posted. As it is, I get an email message for pretty much every change and it's smothering me.
I'd rather configure notification preferences in JIRA rather than filter rules in my email client.
You need to talk to your administrators about the "notification schemes".
I'm aware of that, and I'm pursuing that option, but it's possible that other users do want to know about things like worklogs (say, for example, a team manager), and they won't want to suppress them sitewide. That's why I specified "as a user (vs. a system admin)" in my question.
Yes, but I thought "you need to talk to an administrator" might be enough to tell you that that is your only option. Users can add/remove themselves as watchers on issues, and that's it.
I'm sorry, that reads back as being terse, and I really did not mean it that way. Hopefully, you read it better than I wrote it.
I wanted to add that there's no option off-the-shelf, but there might be some add-ons that give your users some more flexibility.
