JIRA Watches

Should it send email notifies on watch status change or comment, as it works with JM Forums? JIRA doesnt have such feature? I was just mislead by “watch” termin. Thought it does the same. So, i have to check every watch manually for updates or comments?

edit Messed up that you were talking about JIRA…

It depends on how they have JIRA configured. JIRA, like Jive Forums, is very customizable and has a whole slew of options on what sort of events trigger email notifications.


Maybe some comment from devs on this?

Hey wroot,

I checked out Jira configuration and it should be sending a notification to all issue watchers when practically anything happened to the jira issue (eg. new comment was added, issue was edited, etc.).

I just added a test comment to JM-353 which you are watching so let me know if you got that notification email.

No, i havent yet. Do i have to setup it in JIRA? My email is correct in there.

so, im still not getting any email notifies

I am. Maybe your spam filter is catching them?

i meant JIRA notifies (about JM issues). i’'m getting Jive Forum notifies normally. Dont use any spam filter (dont know about my webmail server). But why should it?

yea, I meant JIRA watches as well The spam thing was really just a shot in the dark.

cant reply in an archived thread, but i just got a notify from JIRA. I have turned on watching on Spark meta issue. And someone had commented it. And i’'ve got a notify. But this is first one, and last one for now
