Notifications type



I am currently working with JIRA SOFTWARE (Cloud) 8.0.2 and I just need  to know the difference between DIRECT and PENDING project notifications.

Thanks a lot in advance,



I have modified the "Description" and the "Priority" fields and as result the "Pending Notifications" have been generated: What does "PENDING notifications" means?

Could you explain where you are seeing this?  I don't see it in Jira 8 (albeit I only have early-access on hand), and it's not in Jira 7.

Hi Nic.

When I modify an issue in JIra Softeware (cloud) 8.0.2 version, a notification is generated and I can see it clicking on the bell: A window is open displaying two (2) columns (Direct and Watching notification).

My question was this: Why sometimes the notification is displayed in the Direct notification, and sometimes is displayed in the Watching column? what it depends on?.

Yesterday I saw a video where was explained that  I can see in the Direct column, only issues notifications asigned to me,  and in the other column are displayed issues that I was watching and were modified. 

Are you agree? 

Thanks a lot in advance! 

Ah, I see.  Direct and "watching", not "pending". 

Direct notifications are generated by actions that are directly because you are named - @mentions, being the assignee of something.  Pending are the others, things you're getting because you are part of a group or role named to get those events.


Thank you very much for your answer!


Hi, again.

Can you tell me please, how can I deactivate in CONFLUENCE (cloud version 6.15.1), the sending of outgoing mails

I am the site-administrator.

Thanks a lot in advance!
