JIRA Email notification subject adjustments

Hi Atlassian Team,

I would like to add the actual project name into the email subject to help correspond these issue keys (that seem to be getting harder to distinguish being limited to 10 characters now)


Project Name: Angry Nerds

Project Key: ANDev

Issue Summary: Address these bugs

Email subject: JIRA - Angry Nerds (ANDev-1) Address these bugs

Hi Steven,

You should be able to add the Project name to the mail notification subject by editing the files at ' $JIRA_INSTALL/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/templates/email/subject' and adding the following line to them:


Please note that you'll have one file for each different Issue Event and you'll need to edit all of them if you want all notification to have the project name.

Hope this helps,
