Just implemented this app for the first time the other day

I was receiving this error at first and could not resolve it, but when I logged on to my laptop the next day, the issue went away. I didn't change anything. I introduced this app to my team members and they are now getting this error and I don't know how I got it to go away.

Troubleshooting steps taken that didn't work

  • Quitting and reopening Slack
  • Went into Slack integration tab in Jira and see if any settings can be changed

I am also having this issue. Its intermittent. So far I have not been able to isolate why.... but I suspect it might be one of the fields on the form.

We figured it out. It was the some of the characters in the message we were trying to make a ticket out of.

Example one that doesn't work:

Detail: {'contact_info':{'email':['Enter a valid email address.']}}

The curly brackets "}" were causing the issue "INVALID_INPUT". Those characters must be causing an extraction error on the apps side. Getting rid of them resolved it.

Ahhhhh... thank you for that! I suspect that was our issue as well, I was trying to create a ticket out of a logging message.
