Comment via mail is added to wrong project

We use JEMH as our mail handler and have created a project with with a catchall address, which runs in the operation mode Create and Comment.

When a person mails to without a key in their subject, the default mapped project (GOOD) creates a new ticket, GOOD-1

When a person mails to with a key in their subject (BAD-1), this is added as a comment to the BAD project. 

There's only one rule, and this states that everything is mapped against the GOOD project. How can we configure JEMH, to only allow commenting in the GOOD project, and not the BAD project?

@Frederik De Roover  JEMH has you covered :) You can control what projects can be commented on via the subject!

If you are using JEMH Server/DC:

  • Go to your JEMH profile and edit the Email section
  • Find the setting "Subject IssueKey (comment) Regexps"
  • This is the regular expression ( used to detect issue keys in the subject. Modify the expression to match only the issue keys for projects you want to be commentable via the subject issue key

If you are using JEMH Cloud:

  • Go to your profile and edit the relevant project mapping
  • Under Pre-processing > Issue Association you will find the setting "Subject Issue Key Regex"
  • Like above, modify to match only issue keys from projects that should be commentable in this way

Thank you! Using regex everything works as planned!

Glad I could help. For more information on ways to associate emails to issues in JEMH feel free to take a look at this wiki page:

So long
