Cannot add comment or attachment to page in non-default space using command tag


  • configure default space "XYZ"

  • but on an email I want to send to another specific page in a separate space.

  • I used the  <M2P:space=ABC> tag and it works creates the page with the subject as a title.

  • Next I try again, with same page title in the subject and same space and it doesn't work

    • it shows that it found the page and email and everything looks good, but it doesn't add the content as a comment and the attachment is not added.

The idea is that I want to be able to email attachments to the same page on a daily  basis to create some sort of attachment database storage. It only works when using the default space.

Hi Brendan,

Bug related to the email coming from a user with an email address not present in Confluence (thereby submitting as Anonymous). I will submit a PR with comments as appropriate within the next hour.

Cheers, Daniel
