JEMH -- Configuring JIRA From Name

When Jira sends an email, its coming from "First Last (JIRA) <project@email.com> -- I see this set up in Settings->General->Email From

I would like to change the username to "First Last (PROJECTKEY)" <project@email.com>

Is that possible using JEMH?

Hi Mark,

Making the personal part a dynamic value is interesting but not currently possible in JEMH. JEMH can currenty provide a 'static' override text value for the personal componet of outbound emails, something that JIRA Project level sender email address does not.

A simple way for this to occur is to treat the JEMH field ( Config > Email > Personal Custom from: email name part ) as a velocity template, so something like:

Support Site ($issue.getProjectObject().getKey())

Would then result in:

Support Site (ABC)

Being able to retain the 'name' of the user could be added allowing something like:

$changeUser ($issue.getProjectObject().getKey())

Anyway, I've logged https://thepluginpeople.atlassian.net/browse/JEMH-1607 and will implement this when I get time.

Thanks -- that would be great!

I do not see where you can set the email from name (as opposed the the address) using the ${fullname} syntax.

No, this cant be done in JIRA. You cannot replace the personal component of an email address with dynamiclly generated content.
