User exlcusion in notification scheme?

Hi,

is it possible to exclude a specific user in a notification scheme? I have a user that doesn't want to receive mail notification when a issue is commented when he is reporter of this issue. Is it possible to do that if I want to keep the others reporters notified?

Many thanks,

Sabrina

Yes you can. It is not a built in feature. You are free to modify the email templates https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Adding+Custom+Fields+to+Email . Since they are velocity templates you can change the content of the email depending on the recipient or on the group of the recipient e.g.:

#if($jiraUserUtils.getGroupNamesForUser($recipient.getName()).contains("JIRA-USERS-GROUP")) 
IGNORE THIS EMAIL FROM JIRA
#end

Your user should create a rule in it's email server or client to delete all the incoming mail containing the specific text. So Jira will send the email but with this labeling technique it can be easily dropped.
