For information about how to add a comment from the mail in JIRA Mail Handler

I tried the following methods to add a comment to an existing issue from the mail in reference to the above site.

JIRA Ver:5.2.2

Mail Client:OutLook365

Issue key: ABC-25

Email subject     |Result


ABC-25あいうえお   | Challenge is newly created.

あいうえおABC-25    | Challenge is newly created.

ABC-25          | Comments are added to an existing issue.


Please tell me how to add a comment by applying the issue key in the subject line of the email.

This widget could not be displayed.

I can't tell from your examples, but make sure there is a space before and after the issue ID.

blahblahblah ABC-123 blahblahblah

Thank you for your comment.

I have verified again.

・Double-byte string + byte space + issue key

・issue key + byte space + Double-byte string

・Double-byte string + byte space + issue key + byte space + Double-byte string

It is not registered as a comment in the case of any of the above.


Try going to the Logging and Profiling section of the Administration areas and turn on logging for the class at DEBUG level, and copy the result here when it attempts to read one of the emails.
