Zendesk to Jira integration - Updates in Zendesk do not trigger email notifications to Jira users

Jessie Dallas May 10, 2023

We recently started using the Zendesk Support for Jira integration plugin.  However, when a user comments in Zendesk on an integrated ticket, the comment shows up under the tab for 'Zendesk Support' but the Jira assignee and watchers DO NOT get an email notification.

We do have the checkmark box configured for 'Send email notification to issue watchers when comments are added to linked tickets' and still, nothing.  Used this article:  https://support.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408827996058-Using-the-Zendesk-Support-for-Jira-integration#topic_v2g_kcz_42b 

Has anyone solved this?  Doesn't this make the plugin rather useless if it's not capable of notifying of new comments?  It does work the opposite way; ZD triggers a notification when a comment from Jira is received.

The email notification does send when using the 'Notify' area of the Jira plugin within ZD but our typical users will not have access to that area to be able to use it.

Hi Jessie,

This is Majid @ Exalate.

I think this is by design as you need to use the Notify action to achieve this - as you already know. However, this is something that works out of the box with integrations apps such as Exalate

Please give us a shout out if you are interested in exploring it further.

@Jessie Dallas , hi. an out of the box solution might be what you need - so you can customize it beyond the default functions in order to help with the use case. feel free to explore ZigiOps. It has a trial version so you can test it yourself.

I am Shubham form team Sinergify.

A secure connector/plugin enables a free flow of information and silo-free interactions among various teams using the Zendesk and Jira ecosystems.

Major Use Cases that can be achieved with such integration: 

  • Create Jira Issues directly from Zendesk.
  • View Details of Jira Issues directly from Zendesk.
  • Search & link existing Jira Issues directly from Zendesk.
  • Bi-Directional Data Syncing between the two platforms.
  • Sync Comments & Attachments between Zendesk & Jira.
  • Multiple zendesk Instance Linking.
  • Instance-Specific Ticket Viewing.
  • Project-Specific Jira Field Mapping.
  • Picklist Option Mapping.

And More..

I hope this helps!
