Currently we don't utilize the jira-service desk and simply just use jira-software. I have all the incoming and outgoing mail configured properly and the test connections show positive results. When I send emails to my email@example.com no issues get created, I am wondering if this is a service desk function only. Can someone confirm this for me, if I need service desk to create issues in jira via email.
yes. to do this go to Jira settings > system > incoming mail. Add a pop/imap mail server and an email handler. As @Ismael Jimoh indicated you need to choose a user to be the default "reporter" however, you can choose a system email that you likely have so that it can be distinguished from an actual person. For example I use an automation addon that has an associated (non-paid) email so I use that.
Can you attach your incoming mail handler settings (remove all private info).
I’ll be able to see if there’s anything possibly wrong with it.
Also can you review your logs atlassian-jira-incoming-mail.log file to see if any error is being thrown.
