Email channel replies not to include history

Dear Support,

We are using the email channel to create requests in JIRA service desk. We are also adding comments to requests by replying to notification emails. When replying, all the mail history is added to the comment. Is there a way to prevent this behaviour, from JIRA/service desk side, since the history includes the notification from JIRA.

Hi @Eric Zelinski,

I'm not using the JIRA email handler, I'm using the JIRA service desk email channel which doesn't include the mentioned option.


@Eric Zelinski

Yes the two handlers are different. You don't need to configure JIRA handler to enable the service desk email channel. They have two different configurations.

When configuring your mail handler there's a section "Split regex" we use to try to exclude the email history that is often included on replies. Often, about 98% of the time it works. Here's what I'm currently using, I'm also interested in what others use for this situation.

/[^\n]*From: *|___.*|On .*wrote:|-----Orig.*|On .*(JIRA).*|CONFIDENTIALITY\: This e\-mail.*/

If I understand correctly the JIRA Service Desk handler only creates the tickets. While the JIRA email handler would control the comments (replies). I admittedly am still learning JIRA, but this is the way I understand it. 


You can refer to this ticket here,

JIRA Service Desk mail handler's configuration is different from normal JIRA mail handler.

I will add a non-public link to this support case, but I would like to encourage you to cast a vote on that issue and share your use-case within the comments, as that has way more impact on our product development than most other efforts. Also add it to your watch list to get notified once it is implemented in a future version.


Sorry to necropost but as this is a top 5 search result for comment history in emails, I wanted to share that we added support for up to the last 10 comments to be included in emails sent by Notification Assistant for Jira on Atlassian Cloud
