Gmail problems with email:notify

Malte Begerau April 4, 2022


I was using the email:notify pipe with a gmail account. In the google account I had to set the security option "Less secure app access" to "on". On May 30, 2022, this setting will no longer be available. Right now I have changed to another smtp provider. Is there a way to solve this issue with gmail? Otherwise you probably should remove it from the documentation.

Thanks a lot and have a nice day

Yeah well, I guess gmail will simply not work anymore. Thanks for your time!

Hi @Malte Begerau , @Ben .
Our Atlassian pipe team released new version of pipe email-notify:0.7.0, which explains how to use your gmail accounts in near future.
You need to set up google app passwords.

@Ben: this issue can be marked as Done.
