I am trying to set up a helpdesk for our company with JIRA. Right now I have it setup to allow non jira users to create an issue from the main login screen (without logging in). That issue is then assigned to a dummy account name support, with the Reporter being Anonymous. That all works.
We want to be able to have jira automatically send emails to that non jira user when they submit the issue so that they know that we have received the issue, have an email sent when an issue was commented on, and when the issue is resolved.
I have installed JEMH and cannot seem to figure out how to solve this problem. I have created a test instance that is on my localhost separate from our live jira instance. I have used the following resources and had no success.
Please any advice would be great.
After (1) remote users will ne notified on creation
After (2) you should see sender/participant email address copied to your Text custom field (if not check security privileges, use JEMH Auditing view to see what happened, drill in there for details).
After (3) you should be able to see message going onto the JIRA mail queue as a result of user events.
There is also another wiki walkthrough with screenshots that should provide a useful reference:
I followed the steps but the customer email field still does not show up in the issue. I tried the "where is my field?" troubleshooting thing and it told me "The field 'Customer Email' does not have value for issue TOP-266 and will not be displayed on the view issue page. Set value for that field so that it shows up." but "Assign non jira-users Email to Text CustomField" is set to the customer email field.
If the 'from' address is not registered with a JIRA account holder, it will be a candidate for storing in the custom fields.
My guess is you have only set the 'participants' custom fields rather than the 'sender' custom field. For email storage they can both be the same (or different, to retain some idea of who started the thread).
If that doesnt work for you, please log a support case @ https://thepluginpeople.atlassian.net/browse/JEMH
Attach your Profile XML, and a JEMH Auditing history email export
Hi! I guess I spoke too soon. I finally just went through https://thepluginpeople.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JEMH/Configure+JEMH+for+a+Helpdesk+environment+from+scratch#ConfigureJEMHforaHelpdeskenvironmentfromscratch-CreateaJIRACustomFieldstep by step and got it to work... somewhat. Comments still aren't generating emails and I'm getting error reports in my email that aren't clear. I'll keep banging on it but if I can't figure it out maybe I'll post a separate question on here. Thanks!
