from 0.9.9 Jira 4.4.4 to Latest JEMH Jira 5.2.4

Hey all,

We used the 0.9.9 plugin for some simple creation of jira items, but it seems we'll not be able to use this unsupported version any longer. I upgraded Jira and then upgraded to the latest non-licensed plugin. While I would like to actually purchase the plugin later, to update to the latest jira I absolutely need to get this working today.

We use emails formatted like the below to create jira tickets. Using my old file from 0.9.9 and creating a handler in incoming mail, should this still work?:

Hi James, the limted free-use mode should work, I have actually checked this recently. What may not be obvious is that you should not use your 0.9.9 config file as-is, it has been largely gutted and reworked, download a JEMH jar, take a copy of the usual within and migrate your configuration, one key at a time. Cut/paste will result in failure. Note that field processors must be specifically enabled. @key=value will still work, if enabled.

If you still have problems please raise a support ticket and supply a copy of your configuration at :

p.s. on monday 21st Jan, all my projects are getting migrated to my new OnDemand instance at

That is excellent news. I'll change up the configuration file and go through this weekends update and report back with the results, thank you very much for the prompt reply.
