Send an email notification to all Jira server users
There will be a need for JIRA Administrator to notify user for any event that will be happening on the instance. For example, maintenance notification, rebuilding index, upgrade or even an outage.
- Use JIRA's Send E-mail feature. Navigate to Administration > System > Send E-mail page, and you can draft a message to the list of Groups or Project Roles you want to send the email to
In the event of a JIRA outage and you would like to send notification email to all the users, you can retrieve the list of emails through JIRA database:
SELECT DISTINCT email_address FROM cwd_user;
You can then send the email to the list of addresses generated from that query
- Alternatively, you can use JIRA Announcement Banner to inform any information or activity happening in the instance: Configuring an Announcement Banner
