Manage your project notifications

Jira Product Discovery can send people or roles an email when events happen on a Jira issue. The notifications settings allow you to set rules that are triggered when users perform certain actions. For example: Notify only the reporter when an issue is updated.

Add a notification in team-managed projects

You can notify team members of specific activities when they work on ideas in your project. For example, you can update a Scrum master when someone moves an issue. Or, you can notify a manager when someone’s updated their work logs.

To create a notification, you can:

  1. From your Jira Product Discovery project's sidebar, select Project settings > Notifications.

  2. Select Add notification.

  3. Select the issue event that triggers the desired notification.

  4. Select the users and roles who should receive this notification.

  5. Click Add.

Once the notification is added, the select users will get a notification when the event happens.

Edit notifications in team-managed projects

By default, team-managed projects send notifications about issue events to the issue’s watchers, assignees, and reporters. But, you may want to edit these settings to reduce the amount of email Jira sends, or to notify additional people in your project about key issue activity. For example, you might want to notify your Scrum master when someone’s picked up a task, or inform your project manager when new work has been created.

To edit the notifications your team-managed project sends:

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > Notifications.

  2. Under the Actions column, click More (•••) > Edit.

  3. Select the users or roles.

  4. Click Save.

Disable notifications in team-managed projects

You can delete notifications for certain events if you don’t want to spam your users.

To delete notifications for an event:

  1. From your project's sidebar, select Project settings > Notifications.

  2. Under the Actions column, click More (•••)> Delete.

  3. Click Delete.
