Missing eventTypeName in email FROM part after upgrade from jira 4.4.1 to 5.2.1

Before update the FROM part of the notification email looks like

John Doe (Commented) (Jira) <a@bc.de>


now it looks like


John Doe (Jira) <a@bc.de>


I know how to edit the subject with templates, but our users has configured there email clients to filter on FROM.

I have modified the mail templates. But I think its not possible to modify the FROM part by template.

A workaround is to add the eventTypeName to the subject but we have customers on the system and they use email filters.

This widget could not be displayed.

I have added the eventtype to the subject and informed our customers.

I know this entry but I am not upgrading to 4.4.x and its not the subject its the FROM part of the email.

Ah, gotcha, though -1 is a little harsh :p I think, therefore, you will need a sourcecode customization to do this (MailSeviceImpl.sendRenderedMail I think). Is this within your operational parameters?

Thanks for your second answer its much better than your first :-) I try to cancel my vote but I got an "We're sorry, but an unknown error ocurred.
Please try again in a while."

I could but I don't want customize the sourcecode. For me its more important to keep my code base clean for upgrades than avoiding unpleasant communication with our customers. I will ask our customers how high is their effort.
