We can demonstrate, like clockwork, our JSD email puller runs every 6-7 minutes. This creates a huge delay for quickly processing incoming mail and slows the entire product down to a crawl. Round trips (emails in -> confirmation email back to the user) take a good 12-14 minutes.
We've looked through the JSD mail settings, connectivity logs, and exchange logs. We can confirm the mail gets delivered to the email account JSD is looking at within seconds, but is ignored until that 6-7 minute period where the mail puller decides to run.
Can anyone help point us in the right direction? A specific log (in or out of the UI) to look at? Anything to explain the delayed and programatic-feeling nature of this check would be extremely helpful!
The first thing I would check is the Global Mail Puller scheduler settings per the Troubleshooting JIRA Service Desk Incoming Mail knowledge base article:
There are three jobs involved in Service Desk processing mail which are Global Puller, Global Processor, Cleaner Job. You can access scheduler details for all these jobs VIA the admin search (logged in as admin) by hitting the G key twice and typing Scheduler Details. You can click show more to see the schedule and other details.
This Global Puller is a scheduled job that is set to run every minute. When the puller job is triggered, each email inbox registered to JEPP will in turn has emails fetched. All unread emails in the inbox will be retrieved, including emails sent to cc, bcc, forwarded email, emails to mail list, etc. It will not pull e-mail in the case of Attachment size is too big (larger than 25MB).
Take a look at the mail puller settings and make sure they were not changed.
I don't see these values changed often so the next step I would do is take a look at the Mail Handler by going to System Administration > Mail > Incoming Mail and you should see this field that can be edited:
Verify that is not set to 6 and if so change it to the amount of time you would like.
Thank you for your response! I can confirm the puller, processor, and cleaner jobs look good.
When I check the Incoming Mail settings - we have mail handlers for just about every project we've got (all of them have the 1 minute delay option as you point out)- but nothing for Service Desk in there. I was under the impression that the Service Desk specific mail handling was done in the project itself (projectname -> email requests). If not, maybe that's our problem.
Should I be seeing/creating a explicit mail handler in the incoming mail settings?
...be more productive while being fun to use at the same time. For some, getting started can be a bit intimidating. This is especially true if Jira Service Desk is your first exposure to Atlassian...
