Prevent sending emails to specific groups

Can I somehow prevent sending issue create/update email to specific users?

I have A users belonging to a Jira Users group. Then I have B users NOT belonging to it, but having access to projects. So group A can access jira and do whatever they like, group B is able to send emails into the system, but is not able to login.

Fine so far.

Strange is, that group A is getting nicely formatted HTML mails, group B is getting text-style emails. As there IS a difference already, can I somehow disable sending emails to group B fully? I would rather prefer that instead of sending the html emails, as the html emails would still contain links to jira. As they can not login, I would not like sending out the links anyway.

Well in this case you can try the following untested code snippet:

## here comes the content with link
## here comes the content without link

I'll try that and give you feedback, thanks :)

It works, perfect!! So, I'll get my mails configured now.... Thanks a lot!

you can restric to send mails by using Notification scheme, find the following document to configure notification scheme

Thanks, I know about this page.

Maybe more clearly:

I want to send out notifications to all reporters, assignees etc..., but NOT if they do / do not belong to a group. I can only choose to send notifications to assignees, but not according to the above filtering.

Any chance?


To send email out to group B without links you can edit freely the templates as it is described at . E.g. drop out the links from the text templates and set group B getting text-style emails.

This could actually work out!

How would it look like to check if a specific group is set or not? I am sadly not a java-guru to have a good idea.

#if ($issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10000"))
>$stringUtils.leftPad($issue.getCustomField("customfield_10000").name, $padSize): $issue.getCustomFieldValue("customfield_10000")

I should be sonething like:

#if ($issue.isMemberOfGroup("JiraUsers"))
mail content for jira users
mail content for non-jira users #end

How can I test against a group? Thanks a lot!! (We're getting closer, that could solve it, yeaa :-))

At one of our customers we have prosposed for the very same problem the following solution in the template:

## here comes the content with link
## here comes the content without link

assuming non-jira users can be separated upon the email domain.

No, that's not the case. There are loads of different email-addresses...
