We have created new status: need info.
we have updated the notification scheme to send email when an issue is moved from "need info" to reopen statuse.
The functionality worked ok but a few month ago it stopped.
We havn't changed/update the JIRA, nor the notification scheme
Any idea what could go wrong?
Check the event on the transition, and what the ntoification scheme does for that event very carefully. Make sure the notification scheme is set correctly on the project. Is it possible another admin has changed it (or even yourself by accident - I'm my own worst enemy when it comes to forgetting what I've been updating)
Then you'll need to do some debugging:
Do other notifications from that project arrive ok?
Does the mail go to many users? If it's only one user and they are the one doing the transtition, then do they have the "don't email me on my own actions" flag set on their profile?
I have rechecked my notification scheme and the transition scheme and they both seems to be ok.
I and other people do recieve other emails from jira (for all the projects), so there is no error/exchange rule that can cause the problem.
In this specific transition (reopen issue from "need info" state) it seems like the email is:
Thanks for any help.
Hmm. That does not sound right at all. The event on the end of the transition should always trigger an email, it should be irrelevant whether the user is filling in data or not.
Do you have any listeners or email related plugins that might be doing something different to aff-the-shelf Jira?
Ok, then you'll need to do some deep debugging.
I have to say this really does sound like there's a rule on the email server or client dropping the email.
This is sooo strange.
I have done what you suggested and got in both cases the email notification....
I notice that the subject of the email is
[JIRA] Updated: (XYZ-1088) <here is the title of the issue>
And I'm sure that when things worked all the time, the subject of the email was
[JIRA] Reopened: (XYZ-1088) <here is the title of the issue>
Here is the snapshot of the relevant workflow scheme:
And here is a spanshot of the relevant notification scheme:
(I'm the project lead)
I'm sure I'm missing here someting, but I don't know what it is...
Thanks in advance,
That would explain it - the type of event determines the subject line (generic event comes out as "issue updated") and who it goes to in the notification scheme.
Try changing the event from "generic" to "Issue reopened", then it should behave as you expect.
