How to filter email requests into the right service desk queues?

Hello! :-)

We currently use the OTRS Ticketing System and support multiple products from a single helpdesk. We use multiple support email addresses (like,, to separate support emails for each product and automatically queue them in a specific group.

If I understand correctly, you can only add one service desk email address to a JIRA service desk project (like

We would appreciate if someone could explain us in more detail how we ensure that the requests (send via email) are automatically filtered into the right service desk queues?

We use JIRA as Self-Hosting (Server).

You can have one per project. The way JSD is structured is you have a Help Center and then Projects under that Help Center. You assign customer to Projects so they only see the projects associated to them.

With cloud you are provided a default support email, e.g. but you can add a single custom email to each and every project.

Your portal URLs would look something like this for example.

where "#" is an sequential representation of each project as you add them. So 1 = project 1, 2 = project 2, etc.

I think, from looking at your question, I would setup each product as a project. You can control which customers get access to which products/project thru defining the customers per project. You can also create "Organizations" and put your customers into the organization allowing them to share requests.

hope this helped.

With the setup proposed you won't be able to see requests from all projects at the same time, is this correct? Or is there a way to view issues across multiple projects?
