This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: JIRA Mail Handler not creating issues
JIRA Mail Handler not creating issues even Jira can access the mail account and delete it.
I cannot find why JIRA do not create issues from emails, it worked before for us. Do we have log to check
if JIRA take and emails and processes the email to issue ?
We already tried to check the logs, but cannot find something which is suspicous.
JIRA drops incoming mails (includes internal and external mails) irregulary.
Also sometimes a mail will be converted into an issue and get an older ticket key instead of the newest.
Do you have any suggestion?
Ok, JIRA always logs incoming email if it can't create the issue for some reason.
As you're not getting emails randomly, that suggests two possibilities:
Also "older ticket key" - JIRA simply never does that. There's no code for it at all in the system - the "next key" code is a bit of transitional checking to handle the case where two or more processes are creating at the same instant. It can't "get an older key" unless you've got an add-on or code that is breaking the numbering system. Again, if it's picking out old numbers and overwriting them, you'll have stuff in the log throwing errors.
yes, we did. Our testsystem was clobbering the mails before they were created in our livesystem, just as Nic mentioned.
We had to delete the mail handlers in our testsystem to fix it.
It's also possible to configure a new mailbox for your testsystem, so both systems get separated.
Ohh, there's a trick for dev/test servers - a command line switch to turn off email movements. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/restoring-data-from-an-xml-backup-802592998.html#Restoringdatafromanxmlbackup-disableemail
Issues not creating from the mail handler. Mail handler Test Configuration ran successfully. So, no issues from configuration side.
1) POP/IMAP Mail Server test connection successfull
2) Mail handler configuration also working fine. Test message showing as two Issues created and it showing with reporter name, but it showing wrong reporter name .

My mail handler reading the correct folder and it showing the correct count.
currently am using Jira v7.3.6
kindly explain me where am missing.
Thanks, Parthiban. I actually got it to work and it wasn't the workflow (in my case). I checked the logs and realized that the message was being deleted before Jira was able to read it and create the issue. So, even though the config and "Test Run Results" were both green, the issue wasn't being created for this reason. I created a new folder for the mail to go into and had the mail handler read from that folder only. It worked after that.
