The place to look for the templates is inside 2 new plugins added in Jira 8, located in the <Jira Installation directory>\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\atlassian-bundled-plugins:

  • Jira inform - batchers: com.atlassian.jira.plugins.inform.batchers (batchers-1.0.23.jar)
  • Jira inform - batching plugin: com.atlassian.jira.plugins.inform.batching-plugin (batching-plugin-1.0.23.jar)


Would you please be a little clearer about how to "open" this jar file and "find/edit" the template ?
Thank you.

It seems to be fully explained here:

Glad you found it and yes, you can use the same procedure to repackage any jar file Jira uses, including language packs!

What I want to do, is to add the following elements in the mail subject:

  • status
  • type
  • component
  • customfield_10008

I found how to do for the first one (status) => $

But I didn't find how to do for the others..

For the custom field, I tried the two following solutions but both don't work.

#set( $severity = $issue.getCustomFieldValue($customfield) )

#set( $severity = ${customFields.get('customfield_10008').getValue()} )

The end of the file is the following:

#set( $status = $ )
#set( $emailsubject = "(${key} ${status}) ${severity}"
$i18n.getText('issue.update.batch.mail.subject', [$emailsubject, $header.issueSummary])


Some help ? :)
