In this post we will discuss about Notifications. We will see how we can manage and than how can extent the management 😉 Let’s go 😉

Out-of-the-box

Out-of-the-box Jira have:

  • Standard Notification Scheme codename SPAMMER 😛 , because send email for all events 
  • That means: users have a email bombing every day: Someone change a issue –> email. Comment a issue –> email and so forth 
  • Create a new project using the standard notification scheme generate a …. issue, because people see Jira as a Spammer, not a solution.

So, which solution?

First of all, identify all situations where user need an email ping. Then, configure a specific Notification Scheme for this project: start from Default and remove all situation you don’t need. The result will help you .

Better use project roles in this case:

  • roles are specific for projects
  • limit sending mail to specific and limited set of users.

Alternatives?

There are a lot of alternatives :). Let me introduce some of them. 🙂

Notification assistant for Jira

And this is the email result
