REST API - is it possible to skip sending email when we are updating the issues using rest api

Hi All,

I am using rest api to update the issues in Jira. Is there a way we can skip sending emails for these updates with out modifying the notification scheme ?

Please let meknow.

No, but to answer an more general question: How to limit notifications for automation actions

Thanks for the feedback.

Nope, that is not possible unless you write your own REST modules.

Thanks for the feedback.

It's annoying because it's just one param in the code to suppress it, and many of us use the REST API to modify many issues at a time.

+1 Harder to workaround in Cloud as we cannot create our own REST modules in JIRA.

In between, this issue has been fixed in the most recent JIRA-Version 7.2.
See => JRA-34423

It's been a while, and I'm sure more people in the meantime had this problem. Any plans to add an option (e.g. to avoid notifications for a changes from a given session) in the APIs? Seems simple and quite useful.

Yeah, we have some integrations that do things, i.e. add comments and such that it would be really useful if we could tell JIRA when we do the update if we should notify.  i.e. if it passed, then just logged that, if it failed then add an e-mail.

Overall we have a high volume of e-mail traffic form JIRA, having some extra filtering on it would be great.
