Hi @Oleg Drobot 

With regards the above, I will suggest using your Notification helper from an issue where this field is populated to check if the user receives a notification for the event.

Also, confirm the user has at least browse project permission for the project.


Hi Ismael. User have permissions. For example he is a member of group K4SD-JIRA-IT-GROUP (see screenshoot), and he is receiving email when issue is creating. But for "issue resolved" not received. Account is uploading from AD and same like in group.

In case the mail server is under your control I'd suggest having a look into the mail log. This is the source of truth and you can say for sure if the mail goes through or not.

Also adding to what @Daniel Ebers  mentioned, go to Logging and Profiling if you are the JIRA Administrator.

  1. Enable Debug mode for outgoing mails
  2. Resolve a test issue. (Note the time you resolved it).

Go to your log and you should see in there if JIRA did send out an email to the person in question.

Please remember to disable the debug mode of your outgoing mail after the test as it populates your log if an email is fired for every event.

Also, ask the person to check their spam if the email is received.
