JETI plugin for external users together with notification scheme on project for JIRA users


I m a bit confused on how JETI should be configured.

I m using JETI for external customers that are not users in JIRA. They send emails to an incoming emailhandler.

I have configured JETI with templates and notifications for each event - which works fine.

When a JIRA user is creating a ticket in JIRA (not through the emailhandler) I would like to send emails as well. I have then created a notification scheme that is placed on the project. The problem here is that then the external customers get two email on say create. One from JETI (the emailhandler) and one from JIRA notification scheme that is placed on the project.

How do I solve this?

1. I don t want two emails to external customers but I still would like to be able to communicate with JIRA users inside JIRA...!

Hi Therese,

How are you doing with this problem? I have a similar one, with issue commented...

Does your email handler automatically create a JIRA issue? if so then
Suggestion : Keep a custom field in the Create-Issue form. 'Send to Externals' with values Yes/No. Make sure that the default value of this field is NO and the email-handler does not reset it to Yes; only a manual creator does not.

Now enter the condition in JETI under the EVENT context - project = YOURPROJECT AND "Send to Externals" = Yes

This will ensure the emails goes only when Issue is manually created


You should use only 1 notification scheme. So set up JETI and in the Administration of the Project, go to Notification Scheme and choose "None". That was the trick I got from the developers and it's what worked for me!

Good luck!

Attention JIRA Service Desk users - I had this as well, but had an additional step to resolve.

I had to disable the global JSD overriding notification scheme in addition to what Vera configured above.
