We are trying to configure the email address for Jira where users can send emails and jira logs tickets automatically. Do we need to assign a ticket type to the email address (incident, service request, etc) and then the ticket is logged automatically with that type or do you need several email addresses? My initial thought is that don't because after it is logged you change the ticket type manually. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hey, thanks for the reply. So in theory you would need individual email addresses for all ticket types? I want clients to email the email address rather then log in via the portal (account specifics) and this will make my life a lot harder, having several email addresses. This is so counter intuitive.
I have tried to change the ticket type after logging but it doesn't let me...any idea why?
We do this. All emails come in and are assigned to issue type "email". They are then manually moved (you changed issue type by using "Move"). It is hard to do it automatically as how is JIRA to determine if a given emailed in issue is an Incident or a Service Request or whatever. So we manually Move it to correct issue type and then manually Triage it. That works fine.
