Service desk notifications are not send

I am using Service Desk Cloud and enabled the notification called 'Public comment edited' with the value 'Customers involved' at the field 'To'.

When I sent myself a test-email from this settings-page it works fine: E-mail arrives.

But whenever I add a comment to an issue with a 'request participant', this e-mail will not be send unfortunately.

Can you tell me why this could not be working?

Hey - has the customer opted out for notifications on this request?



HI Christoph,

Not as far as I know. I tested it with one of my own addresses as well. Can I check this somewhere to be sure?

Hi Sjoerd, 

Only by asking them or even looking at their view of the request I guess... Do other notifications you have configured work? 



I have discovered now that there is nothing wrong with the notification. 

Something really strange is going on with my e-mail. Those notification arrive in my mailbox (Exchange-server) but after a seconds the mail disappears completely (Yes I checked all folders and rules).

Thats a problem of a complete different order.

Thanks anyway for your help.

You're welcome and thanks for sharing! 

Too bad...  :-/

The problem does still exist. It looks like other people don't receive the custom notifications.

Can I check somewhere if Jira creates a mail. Some kind of logging?

I do now, but I don't see how it helps me.

(I am using the cloud service...)

Then I suggest addressing the Atlassian support...
