AD Location attribute-based Mail Handler?

Is there a way to leverage AD profile information to route emails to a specific help desk using JEMH?

For example, my AD attribute says my location is Texas. I send an email to help@help dot com and because my AD attribute says Texas, it sends my email to the Texas support desk.

Or any other sort of AD attribute availability within JIRA? I know there's User Profile Plug-in in Conlfuence, but I have not found anything for JIRA.

Running JIRA latest, btw. Thanks in advance! -a

Hi Amanda,

JEMH has Project Mappings that can route by domain, if the inbound mailbox is the same and the sender domain is the same (for all users) you're out of luck right now. If the sender domain was you could route based on the sender domain.

Ths sounds very much like a candidate for a new LDAPAttribute Rule type, its a good idea for orgs with a central LDAP infrastructure.

With an LDAPAttribute Rule, if the senders attribute was 'texas' is would then Route to the associated Project Mapping (potentially different project per attribute value, but could be the same project, and each rule would route to a component).

Ive logged a feature request for this:

Likely it won't get looked at until after summit.

Thanks so much for your prompt reply!
