Creating jira tickets via email

We'd like to see if there's a way to automate Jira ticket creation via email. Specifically, we have incoming digital mail coming into an email and each requires research and forwarding. Instead of it coming to email, can it go to an email box and automatically create a Jira ticket with an attachment? Thank you.

Hi @Kojo 

You must configure the incoming mail, to do this, you must access to:

  • System -> Mail -> Incoming Mail

Click on "add incoming mail server", give it a name and select the email service provider.

Then you must add a mail handler, give it a name and choose the type of mail handler and the name of the folder from which it should read, if it is blank it will be Inbox, but you can configure automatic rules in the mail server so that the mails that are included in a certain folder are created with a specific type of issue in Jira.

Then you select the project in which the Issue will be created and the type of Issue, if you want the reporter of these issues to be a specific user you must also indicate it.

Select options Mail handler.PNG

And finally perform a test to verify that the connection with the mail server is correct.

You can consult the documentation here.

I hope it helps you, greetings

Hello @Kojo 

Yes, Jira issues can be automatically created from emails.

Reference this document

Thanks, @Trudy Claspill 

I have query another query. Can we send an auto-reply once the ticket has been created by email?

@Al Nafi DevOps Team Lead 

If you are following the document I linked above to automatically create issues in a Company Managed project from emails, then I recommend sending an auto-replyby setting up the Notification Scheme for the project to send a notification to Reporter on the Issue Created event.
