Service desk CC-ing creates a new ticket

Ben Greene November 24, 2022

When a ticket reporter CCs in someone else into their ticket email thread, instead of adding this newly CCed person's replies as comments, it creates a duplicate ticket with the naming convention "RE: Original-Ticket-Name".

I have attempted the project settings changes listed here: 

https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/replies-to-jira-service-desk-tickets-result-in-duplicate-tickets-964967584.html

However after trying both settings listed, neither works.

Please advise on how to fix this, we want this CCed person's replies to be comments on the original ticket.

@Robert Wen_ReleaseTEAM_ Hi! Maybe you can help me with my problem.
I came across this problem. We have a group in the mail, let’s call it group “A”; it includes several people. When we receive a request to the servicedesk, a person who is not listed in CC, but is in group “A” tries to leave a comment, the ticket is duplicated

@Andrey Ivanov , are you talking about a group email alias? Because JSM doesn't expand the alias.

@Robert Wen_ReleaseTEAM_ As I understand it, JS can't figure out who is in the mailing group and that's why copies are being created?

That's my hypothesis.  Normally anyone that's CC'ed on an email request would be added as a watcher/collaborator and able to reply and have their reply added as an external comment.  The group email address is added, but since it doesn't decompose to its individual members, anytime someone in the group replies, JSM sees that as a new email request and creates a new ticket.

@Robert Wen_ReleaseTEAM_ Hi! Your theory is correct, JSM cannot detect people in a group, I'm just looking for another way to automatically add people to CC
