I'm currently assessing Jira Servicedesk as an option for our ticketing solution, and is on a free plan for Jira Service Desk and I'm having trouble with request creation via e-mail.
I setup a personal gmail e-mail channel, and I got the confirmation e-mail that confirm the custom email account is connected, which says: "Your service desk email channel is ready to receive requests!". However, any e-mails received by this e-mail doesn't create any Jira Service Desk requests. These e-mails also are unopened and remains in unread status.
I have come across multiple similar threads, such as https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Service-Desk-questions/Emails-sent-to-the-service-desk-address-create-no-ticket/qaq-p/1047505 and https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Service-Desk-questions/Emails-not-creating-requests-issues-in-Service-Desk/qaq-p/1048767 . I have verified / conducted the following steps:
Please advise on what is the resolution for it.
Hello @Evan Teguh,
Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community and for sharing the tests you already made.
When an email is linked to Service Desk, it's important that this address is used only for Jira and that only the admin has access to it. Also, it's important that this email is not accessed frequently via mobile because if the email is read before Jira does, the ticket won't be created. Jira only creates tickets from unread emails from the inbox.
Since it's not showing any error on the email logs it means that the emails are not even processed by Jira.
Can you test sending an email to the default mail handler (the one that is created by the project)? Is it created correctly?
Can you disconnect and connect the custom mail handler in order to test?
Is there any other email that you can use to add to the project?
We often have questions from folks using Jira Service Management about the benefits to using Premium. Check out this video to learn how you can unlock even more value in our Premium plan. &nb...
