Hello Jira community,
As outlined by Microsoft previously, the support for Basic Authentication which was previously scheduled to end in September 2022, will now permanently end in the first week of January 2023. However, starting October 2022, Microsoft will be randomly turning off Basic Authentication for some customers with the ability to use the self-service diagnostic to re-enable Basic Authentication for any protocols they need, once per protocol until December 2022.
Given we added support for OAuth back in October 2020, it’s recommended that Jira admins reconfigure Incoming Mail using OAuth before the deprecation timeline to continue creating issues and comments via email.
Click the cog icon on the top right of the Jira instance and select System
Scroll down to Mail and select Incoming Mail
Click Add incoming mail server
Enter a name (required) and description (optional) for your mail server
Select Microsoft as an email service provider, your sign-in credentials, and allow Jira the requested permissions
Add an incoming mail handler with the Microsoft incoming mail server you configured in step 3
Optional: To ensure that it’s the new mail server and handler that’s processing your incoming mails to create issues and not the old one, please follow the steps below:
Edit the existing mail handler configured with the Basic Authentication mail server
Set the value for Delay (in minutes) field to a higher one (eg: 30 mins)
Click Next and Save the new configuration
Once confirming that the new mail server and handler are processing incoming mails since the Basic Authentication mail handler will take 30 mins compared to 1 minute by the new OAuth mail handler, proceed to step 6
Delete the incoming mail server that uses Basic Authentication
For Microsoft mail servers, Jira will auto-fill authorization and the token endpoint data. You’ll need to review and confirm permissions to let Jira access your information.
Note: We’re currently evaluating support for Microsoft Government Community Cloud (GCC) customers for Incoming Mail. More information on this will be shared soon.
As always, if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to leave a comment on this post.
