Hi, these comments are like commenting from the add comment button on the issue? Or they are comments added on transitions? Could be something like @Henning indicated, when you do a comment with other 'activity' then it's another kind of event.


If all the below items are checked, then the email will be sent

  • Mail server has to be enabled.
  • Required Users have to be added in the Issue Commented and Issue Comment Edited event in your Notification Scheme & this scheme has to be linked to the required project.
  • "Notify users of their own changes?" must be set to Yes under the User Preference (Admin Section)

If the mail is not going to a particular users after they have commented, then also check if "My Changes" value is equal to "Notify Me" in that Users login Check for more details

Hi Chaithra, I have verified all above. But strangly for user x when he commented for first time associated members like Reporter, Assignee, All watchers and Multi User/Group Pickers got emails. for second and third comments none of we got emails including user x

Sometimes you'll get a Issue Updated Event, e.g if you comment and attach a file at the same time. Is the receiver in the notification setting for that event?


Hi Henning, This could be a reason i reproduced the problem my making More Actions -> Attach Files. we didn't receive email because Notifications disabled for Issue Updated Event.

Thanks for help.
