In our Jira (5.1) system not every user who can make a bulk change can uncheck the checkbox "Send mail for this update". Where can this behavior be configured?
When bulk changing issues in the issue navigator, actually only administrators or project administrators has the ability to reconfigure the "Send mail for this update". This information is as per specified in the following documentation:
From the documentation:
"It is possible to disable mail notification for a particular bulk operation by de-selecting the 'Send Notification' checkbox in the bulk operation wizard. In order for this option to be available, you must be an administrator or project administrator of all the associated projects on whose issues the bulk operation is being performed."
However, apparently I believe that this feature may not be configurable, hence only administrators or project lead may have the ability to disable the mail notification when bulk updating issues.
I hope that the info helps.
This need came up for me at work today, and I'm glad I stumbled across this salty comment. The details of the minute the bug was opened are great.
A friend jokingly asked me how old the bug was, speculating 2017, as though that were old, but my oh my did we get a good laugh. We've crossed 16 year mark folks, this bug can drive!
