I found a quirk in the CRM plugin that is going to severely impact our usage.
When creating a JIRA issue from SFDC using a "Create Issue" button it passes the "Owner Email" to JIRA to populate the "reporter" field.
Unfortunately SFDC forces all email addresses to lower case and the Active Directory our JIRA instance is referencing has mixed case email addresses. The CRM plugin compares the two using a case sensitive comparison and this results in the following error message:
A JIRA user must be specified as the reporter when creating new issues.
Check your JIRA/CRM Field Mapping settings for 'reporter' or specify 'reporter' or 'jira_user' in the URL.
The value for 'reporter' may be a JIRA user name or a unique JIRA user email address
This blocks issue creation even though there is a match when using a non-case sensitive compare:
