Disable pop-up notifications

Kim Fain April 8, 2021

Is there a way to completely disable the small pop-up notification boxes?  The ones that say things like 'Issue type change...'

 

When mine come up, they stay there and don't disappear unless I close them.

I'd rather just not have them pop up at all.

 

Hopefully this is a simple fix, so thanks to all, in advance, for taking the time to respond.

While your at it, how do I permanently dismiss this little gem?  Any time the page reloads its back again.

Had the same request to disable this extremely obtrusive “feature” here  https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Software-questions/JIRA-Board-Slide-Out-Notifications/qaq-p/1884574

As a temporary fix until JIRA adds a setting to disable this “feature”, I created a chrome browser extension that hides the slide out notifications css selector.

Please make this happen! It's counter productive, this feature,

Hi @Kim Fain 

  Unfortunately, it cannot be turned off. We have an open issue in our backlog to make this configurable:

Cheers

Bummer.  Is there a timeline for a fix?

And now well into 2024 I think the progress is find another platform.

Not just because the feature is incredibly annoying - but if it takes 3 years for a tiny change like this to make it through to development and release, it's highly concerning.

Not a developer. When I see something like this with no end user context,JiraPopUp.png

my first thought is malware.

I am a developer. When I see something like this that:
will not go away when you hit escape,
takes over the screen so you can't invoke developer tools,
repeatedly appears even after you have hit dismiss

I absolutely know it is malware.  


why does Jira spam its customers?

Just to be check, it is still not possible to completely turn off notifications in the Atlassian cloud for a specific Jira product (from a test environment) ?

I know that I can turn off email notifications, but I am referring to the one of the notification bell.

Just started using Jira and encountered this same issue. Pop-up notif is so distracting. So I guess there's no native solution to disable it until now?

If you have an ad blocker installed, simply hide the popup element.  AdBlockPlus did it for me...no more pop-ups.
