JIRA Cloud emails sent as our company domain fail to pass DMARC authentication

After setting up a verified domain under the JIRA Organization (verified all SPF and DKIM settings are correct). We changed the JIRA project to send as our company domain. However, emails coming out of JIRA fail DMARC authentication due to bad DKIM authentication by Atlassian. The DKIM is verified against the atlassian domain and not our company domain. So the DKIM is not aligned and DMARC fails the message so it ends up in Spam or totally rejected.


Headers from email show DKIM is checked against and, but nothing about d=mycompanydomain:


DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha1; c=relaxed/relaxed;; h=from:to:in-reply-to:references:subject:mime-version:content-type; s=s1; bh=4uWfLAkrLO3ENH35Y0WCPV8TY1I=; b=uYVXlxSnslXMbVQWA1Z732k 2ihnhYFrCfVJJLq+v4Ed90xoWVAjuavFm4GFKNvb1WzIMb71rDlKRB4y8sOAC2hi 9Zy2KM5MdsHKTStUoF1C1MmcbqtBFA2fX17ocCZrkfkVPFEUKK7/F41YvX6SKcso wqDnsnAtVfKK1R06LIPg= DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha1; c=relaxed/relaxed;; h=from:to:in-reply-to:references:subject:mime-version:content-type:x-feedback-id; s=smtpapi; bh=4uWfLAkrLO3ENH35Y0WCPV8TY1I=; b=GbFkHl8qMdSX4JAy8v y5lyr8bvUVuZvy/l38TZhVtsDdBLxJWH6BL14J3o/pVNkHIrPNxFuSI4jCXmZp8J sOYXltDFIlrcvGgRmasL9RWCqroRdWbRAO1SY9pwwo/8NC/JZazq8QZR1xR9rXUq QYDYKLxHy6I7MZC6elcIm/rPU= R


seems like there is a known issue regarding this

but for us if this keeps failing then we can't deploy the solution. Has anyone been able to work with Atlassian support to get DKIM to authenticate properly and ultimately pass DMARC.

This is odd - we are getting the "Be careful with this message" warning on Gmail in our organization. The message headers show that DKIM, SPF and DMARC all pass but are not sure why it is still showing the error to our users?

Anyone else found the fix or the exact issue on this?

Hi, we had the exact same problem and as far as I could see the DKIM validation is done towards the domain and not your company domain used as sender address. we ended up with not using Jira Service Desk much because of this. :(

We are now using Salesforce where we created our own DKIM by a few clicks. This was then added in our company server (DNS) and outbound emails are therefore DKIM validated towards my company domain. No warnings are shown in gmail anymore. 

We had to change our entire servicedesk to Freshdesk because of the  this issue.

DKIM and SPF was setup in a matter of minutes and is working flawlessly.

Atlasian wants to be the world leader in servicedesk software and yet fails to implement basic email security.....

We have the same problem. Therefore we cannot use Service Desk in production...

Thanks for the responses all ... Is there anyone at Atlassian that is able to feedback with an update on this issue? Seems it is still an issue and a relatively basic issue if I understand correctly after reading the comments too. 

This is still an issue for us as well.  We have tried setting up multiple domains and verifying them and all of them fail the DMARC and end up in Junk/Spam for our customers.  This issue alone will cause us to switch to zendesk.  Customers think we are not responding to help desk tickets since they are in their Junk.

I can confirm having the same issue and really want this to be resolved. Atlassian should implement this ASAP in order to be Enterprise compliant. This is actually bread and butter for implementing email security correct.

We are facing the same issue in our company,

I have opened a support ticket because this is severely hurting our business.

I am currently running into this DMARC failure issue when using our company domain for outgoing emails. Is there any resolution in sight?? I am extremely disappointed this doesn't appear to have been addressed yet.

its still an issue. this is unbelievable, two years later and they still dont have their shit setup properly.

Also an issue in our domain. If Atlasian doesn't fix this we have to look elsewhere for a ServiceDesk

Same here, emails are ending up in Junk mail and so they are not read by the user :-(
