JEMH Project mapping is unable to find Project


My requirement is to create a issue to a project based on the TO address of the email. SO i created project mapping and everything is working but, when i run the test case, it is showing the above error and creating the issue to the fallback project.

Unable to process field [project], its not a Project key or numeric ID. Falling back to defaults to find a project for the issue.

Here '430' is the Project key.

If created a seperate profile for the projects, then the issues are creating for all project.

Hi, just getting to this after summit. So, JIRA 6.1 does not allow a numeric project key, you get:

You must specify a unique project key, at least 2 characters long, containing only uppercase letters.

Is this a legacy project?

Btw, there is a checkbox in the Project section: Project Auto Assign if you set that, the address will be scanned as a project key automatically, it may just work (I cant test right now as I can't create a project with a numeric key).
