I wanted to run this scenario by the community to get your input on an issue that I found.
If an end user receives an email notification from firstname.lastname@example.org and then replies to that email, their response updates the ticket but uses the Jira Automation account to post the reply -- how can I change this to the user replying to the email? Should I just disallow email replys or is there a way to grab their user account and add it to the name field of the comment being made to the ticket?
I'm confused about what is actually happening here. So user receives this email from an Automation Rule:
Subject: Issue XYZ-123 has been moved to In Progress
And when they reply with an email to email@example.com, you're saying a comment gets added to the issue that is authored by the jiraautomation user?
Can you double-check what email address the reply is going to?
Because I don't think that is how it should work.
Jira has to be configured to add comments via email, and it's odd to me that you'd have configured the firstname.lastname@example.org to accept these emails. There's details on this here:
Hi @Matt Sardi ,
you can setup the Actor that runs the automation (by default it is Automation for JIRA).
Please go to the automation and, on Rule details menu, select "User who triggered the event"
That should fix your issue.
Hope this helps,
