Add a custom email account

Your service project comes with a pre-configured cloud email address that you can send to customers to start using right away. You can also add one custom email address to link to an existing account (for example, the email address your IT team uses for incoming requests).

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

To add a new email:

  1. From your service project, select Project settings ()> Email requests.

  2. Choose your email service provider and 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 to receive requests in the email linked to your service project. You will need to configure any forwarding rules or aliases in your email clients.
