Can Automation for JIRA send an email to a group

I want to use the send email action in Automation  for JIRA. Can I address the email to a group, and if so how?

Hi Dave,

Sadly this also isn't possible yet. Once again it's a good suggestion and I've raised for now to track this! We should really add support for a number of items to the 'to' field: User picker, group picker, user & group custom field picker.



Dang it, Andreas!

Now you're down to 108% out of a possible 100%. I'm watching the new issue. I hope to see it rise and get addressed.



I'm not sure if this is what you are talking about but is there an option within JIRA to add a button into a ticket that will send a standardised e-mail to an e-mail address?

What I'm looking for is that when we have a P1, if after Triage it is decided that it is still a P1, JIRA has an option within that ticket to send the initial Major Incident comms to a specified group e-mail address. Hoping to save the time of having to open Outlook, load the e-mail template, change the details to be relevant to this P1, and then send. 

Is this possible?

Hi Adam,

So with Automation for JIRA, you can setup a rule for this case that looks like this:

  • Trigger: Manual trigger (this add's a button to the issue in issue operations in server or in a panel in cloud)
  • Action: Send e-mail.  Then in this action simply use your group e-mail address as the 'to' address.

Hope this helps!


Hi, Andreas.

That's great, thanks. That is a big help.

A follow up question, can you specify the e-mail address that the e-mail comes FROM and what details can/will be contained in that e-mail?

Hi Adam,

We actually just shipped some fixes around this. Please see for more details.

The short answer:

  • In server yes, you can set both from and reply-to
  • In cloud, you can only set the reply-to address.  Setting the from address causes issues with SPAM filters so we can't allow this.



Hi guys,

Probably not the place, but correct me if I am wrong.

Looking to actually send email to the issue Reporter with something like {{reporter}} in the email field or @reporter mention in a comment. Either way it should solve.

What we want to do is to all issues which are pending customer feedback, we send a reminder every two or three days, depending on the Priority of the issue.

Appreciate any help you can provide.



I followed the link in the first comment and it says it is done.  But I don't see the option in my system.  I am trying to send an email to a project role based on the project.  So for example, I have a role of PM and EM and I want to send an email to them when a bug get's to certain conditions through the automation rules.

Ditto to @Joe Harmon's comment. Anyone know how to access the additional  e-mails?

If you mean sending to Google group, then I've just found what was the problem I had. Jira Automation action "Send email" can send email to ONLY 1 google group email. If you configure second group email, then this second will not receive email from Jira Automation. I do not know why that happens. Both groups have absolutely identical configuration. 

I am not sure why Automation isn't working for you, but we support emailing multiple Google Groups on Notification Assistant for Jira Cloud.
