Receiving email notifications on custom JQL filters

Is there any way of allowing Jira users to subscribe themselves to events on issues under some specified JQL filter? (e.g. If a user wants to get notification of edits on issues in a specific project's component etc)?

I know we can use Jira's built-in "subscribe" to a saved filter (to get an email notification with the list of issues), but we'd be interested in seeing the events themselves (rather than the issues listed). Does the "Notification Assistant for Jira" plugin allow end users to set up new notifications, or would these need to be setup / managed by an admin?

Hi Andrew,

Notification assistant will solve the request for you. But from an admin perspective. You will need to define the notifications from the admin perspective. This allows you to control what is sent out as notifications.

If you want users to be able to control their own notifications I would suggest you to take a look at the Bug Watcher plugin (

It allows users to setup individual watch schemes
