smart commit not working with correct syntax

Hi JIRA team,

One of my developers is having smart commit error every time he commit source code to Git connected to our JIRA server. Screenshot below. As you can see, he used the correct syntax: ISSUE_KEY #time 30m #comment messages. But the smart commit error is shown. Which in turn the work log is not updated.

Other developers don't have this issue. But, sometimes 1 other developer commit, the smart commit error message is shown even though the syntax is correct.

Related to smart commit error, there are errors in mail queue. JIRA can't send the email. This only happen in smart commit because I get other JIRA emails regarding created/updated issue changes. Screenshot of the mail queue can be seen below.

JIRA server stats are as follow:

  • JIRA version: 7.0.9
  • Git Integration for JIRA version:  2.9.5 (Plugin byBigBrassBand)

I'm having similar issue with Smart Commit on JIRA Cloud and Bitbucket Cloud (mercurial).

Don't see Mail Queue errors and haven't checked with other developers if the same.

The commit shows referenced in the Issue, but not the Smart Comment. I've tried is several ways.

including just "EXA-34 #resolve"

In researching a different issue related to smart commits, I ran across the following caveat that might help in debugging your issue:
  • The committer's email address must match the email address of a single JIRA Software user with the appropriate project permissions to transition issues.

I'd suggest checking email config for that user on both GH and JIRA and also their permissions in jira.
