How to enable mail notification for workitem changes from the import function "workitems from csv" ?

Mail notification in general is enabled and were send for direct WI changes and @user notifications.

But when we import WI changes in the eclipse-client with the import function "Workitems from csv" or when we change an editor layout for existing WIs (e.g. new attribute) the creator, owner, subscriber, ... didn't get any information about the change via mail.

The changes were shown in the "History".

we had to write a tool to disable email notifications for our mass imports (not from CSV) and restore the users settings afterward. 50-100k emails is not good the system!.

Hi Katrin,  

Please check out this work item... https://jazz.net/jazz/web/projects/Rational%20Team%20Concert#action=com.ibm.team.workitem.viewWorkItem&id=179760

Seems like notification has been intentionally disabled...

I can confirm that there are no notifications sent for imported work items. This is intended behavior (and not configurable). We don't send notifications for imported work items in order to make sure the mail server is not spammed by a large import.
