When creating an issue with the REST API, can I disable email notifications?

I'm moving a large number of issues from one JIRA instance to another, using the REST API. It's going quite well, but when the issue includes a mention of a user, that user is getting an email notification. This can result in hundreds of emails being sent. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Hi Ned,

This is not possible - You may find more information in the related post below:


Some possible alternatives would be to perform this action during a 'maintenance period' while you temporarily disable e-mails notifications, or simple change the notification scheme for the project whose issues you are migrating.



In between, this issue has been fixed in the most recent JIRA-Version 7.2.
