how to limit jira notification?

I am one of the component lead for the project, and i want to get notified for all the changes related to my component. But, i dont want notification if the component is removed from the issue.

Currently, i am continuously getting notification even if the component is removed. Even when i comment on any issues, i stated to get notification.

How do i stop or manage the notification?

Hi Chris,

You can restrict the actions which will trigger notification e-mails and also who will receive them by configuring a Notification Scheme.

The document below provides information on how to configure it, as well about how to identify why a particular user is receiving or not receiving e-mail notifications by using the Admin Helper:

Hello Chris,

Have you taken a look at our notification scheme documentation?

You can create one instead of using the default options (i'm not sure if you have already done some configuration on this or not).

Hi, Can you check if you have enabled auto watch on your profile page? This can be the cause of starting to send you notification when you comment on an issue. If its enabled you are added as a watcherfor all issues you comment on. You can disable it of not needed. Vijay

Thanks of all.

Yes, i did looked over the notification scheme but it not limited to per user.

Is there anyway, we can customize the notification as per user specific? or can we disable the auto watch for single user?

Hi @Samuel,

You can add users on an individual basis however I would suggest against this and instead use User Groups, Reporter, Assigned, and Project Roles in your notification scheme. 

You can disable the auto-watch feature.

Here is a similar thread about reducing/customising events for email notifications.

Hope this helps
