How to remove the word 'Jira' in email notifications?

Hi All,

All notifications has a string 'Jira' preppended in the email subject.

How can we remove this? I can see the subject templates and it can only control the subject and issue key.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Erwin,

Yes, this is possible. You need to modify all *.vm files under /atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes/templates/email/subject

($issue.key) $issue.summary



Please note that you require to restart JIRA before the changes to take effect. More info on this: Customising Email Content

Hi Vicky, are you sure with this? I think the sample you gave only removes the "(ACE-11452)" in my sample but not the string 'Jira'?

Ups, my bad, Erwin. Please refer to Andy's answers below for the correct answer.

Cheers, Vicky.

Hi Viki, is it possible to do the same from admin page ?
