Mailhandler - Cannot handle message as destination project has not been configured.




I want to setup a mailhandler but it doesn't work.

My Setup

  • Benutzer benachrichtigen: true
  • Benutzer erstellen: true
  • CC-Bearbeiter: true
  • CC-Beobachter: true
  • E-Mail-Adresse erfassen:
  • Mehrfach: ignore
  • Zitierten Text ignorieren: true

I've try to observe a subfolder on this imap mail address. ( Folder "support" )

On my root INBOX it works perfekt. 

This is the error message:

Found 1 unprocessed message(s) in the imaps folder.
Der Vorgang kann aufgrund einer ungültigen Lizenz nicht erstellt werden: [Sie können derzeit keine Vorgänge erstellen, da dafür Zugriff auf eine JIRA-Anwendung erforderlich ist. Um Zugriff auf eine Anwendung zu erhalten, müssen Sie Mitglied einer Gruppe sein, die einer Anwendung zugewiesen ist.]

And this is the error mail.

This is an automated email from the issue creation service at "".

An error was encountered whilst handling messages from the mail server “” using the handler “class”.

The error was: ------------------------ “Cannot handle message as destination project has not been configured.”

The error and the email that caused the error are attached to this email.

If this is a recurring problem, you may wish to contact a system administrator to check the parameters of your mail fetching service:

— This message was sent by Atlassian Jira (v${build.version}#${build.currentBuildNumber})

I am a bit confused by this problem.   If this is a Jira Service Desk project, then you should just follow the steps in Receiving requests by email to add a mail handler to this project.

Jira will allow you though to setup a Core mail handler on a service desk project.  But I would not recommend doing this in just about any case.  The reason for this is that Service Desk has an expectation that you will have a large number of unlicensed users emailing your service desk project.  But Jira Core/Software mail handlers work differently.  As such these mail handlers are checking to make sure that the user emailing in actually has the permissions to create a new issue in the project in question.  Given the error you listed in German, it translates to:

The process can not be created due to an invalid license: [You can not create operations at this time because it requires access to a JIRA application. To access an application, you must be a member of a group assigned to an application.]

In my view this appears to be a Jira core mail handler, and not a service desk mail handler.   The Core mail will require that the server is not only a user in jira, but a Jira Core/Software licensed users.  I would not expect your Jira Service Desk Customer accounts to necessarily be in these other application access roles.  In most cases they are not, but I think perhaps that is what is happening here given the information I can see that this time.
