Add a custom email account in next-gen projects

Your service project comes with a pre-configured cloud email address, but you can also add a custom one to link to an existing email address. Each service project can have one linked custom email account.

You must be a Jira site admin to add a custom email account.

To add a new email:

  1. From your service project, go to Service project settings () > Channels > Email.

  2. Choose your email service provider and complete the requested details.

  3. Click Next.

  4. Depending on your email service provider, complete the steps to link your account.

If you’re using Gmail, you'll need to set up 2-Step Verification and an App Password with your Google account. Then enter your App Password in the Password field.

If your Microsoft account uses multi-factor authentication, you can use OAuth by clicking on the Microsoft logo, or set up an application-specific password.

If you use more than one email address to interact with your customers, set up forwarding rules or aliases in your email clients to receive requests in the email linked to your service project.

If you don’t have an image in the lower-left of your service project sidebar which states you're in a next-gen project, check out these classic project articles instead.
