Is it possible to send email from a Scriptrunner using gmail SMTP?

I am trying to implement a script and run it with Scriptrunner that sends an email using the gmail SMTP.

I tried several script examples I found online, most of them from the Atlassian Community, but none worked (I received compilation errors about missing classes).

I know that with a script one cannot send an email using the SMTP of Atlassian, as this is not a SMTP. This is why i was thinking in using the gmail SMTP.

If you want to bypass the jira email system altogether, you'll need to import some smtp  or mail handler class.

At this point, you're dealing with standalone groovy/java and you'll have better luck with generic forums rather than jira/atlassian specific ones.

Quick google got this as first hit:

Hi Peter!


Thanks a lot for your answer!

What you suggest is exactly what I tried, but didn't manage, as I got the error message something that the imports are not found.

Having Jira in Cloud and having these problems, made me ask about this in the Atlassian Community.

I don't have access to a cloud instance, but does scriptrunner with cloud support grapes?

It looks like the javax.mail is available in a public maven library

You can try this

import javax.mail.*
import javax.mail.internet.*
@Grab(group='javax.mail', module='mail', version='1.4'

It may not work the very first time since it takes a bit of time to download the library in the cache.
