Adding users through BobSwift CLI sends a welcome email even if I didn't specify the --notify flag


I used Bob Swift CLI to addUsers with the runFromCsv option.


I am adding users with no product access so they can be managed users for our Customer Portal. I didn't want them to get an email. They got an email that says:


Alicia Smith and your team are waiting for you
you are missing out on working with your team at [myurl]
Join them now

Hi [John Doe],

Your team is waiting for you to start collaborating. They are using Jira Service Desk and Confluence.

Alicia Smith has invited you to join them using  tools.




How can I stop this email from going out? I'm on Jira Cloud.

Hi @APS 

We are from the BobSwift support team. Thanks for raising the request with us.

We have created a support request on behalf of you in our portal

Please signup to our portal to access the ticket.

As of now, we can not suppress the notification sent out after the user-created using the CLI app in the Jira cloud. You may be aware that CLI uses the REST API call to execute the command.

There is an Atlassian ticket raised for the option to disable invitation email 



Hello I have signed up for your portal but I still get "You do not have permission to view this request."

Will disabling the Outgoing Email server during the CLI run stop the invite email send or are the emails queued?

Hi @APS 

Can you please click on this link , it will prompt the login after login verifies once. 

If you still face the issue, please share with us the screenshot to troubleshoot the issue.

Once you disable the Outgoing Email server all the emails will stop and it will not be queued.
