Built from the ground up, SPF is an easy-to-use, comprehensive solution for protecting your business from malicious impersonation. By requiring a firm's authorized users to send content using their firm’s designated IP, a higher level of message protection is afforded to the end-user or recipient. Confer with your IT or legal team to determine if SPF is a good fit for your company.
In this document, you will learn how to set up SPF for Jira Cloud / Atlassian.
Creating an SPF Record for Jira Cloud / Atlassian
Here are the steps to set up SPF for Jira Cloud :
Login to your DNS management console
Navigate to Tools & Settings > DNS Template
You need to edit the DNS TXT record related to SPF
An SPF TXT record for Jira Cloud will have the following syntax:
mydomain.com TXT v=spf1 v=spf1 include:_spf.atlassian.net -all
Publish this record in your DNS records section for your respective domain.
Note: If you don’t have an SPF record previously for your domain, simply publish the above-mentioned record to enable SPF for outgoing emails using Jira Cloud. If you do have an existing SPF record in your DNS, you need to modify it to include Atlassian, as shown below:
Previous SPF record: v=spf1 mx -all
Modified SPF record: v=spf1 mx include:_spf.atlassian.net -all
Wait for 72 hours to allow your DNS to process the changes
Finally, you can look up your record using our SPF record lookup tool, and enable DMARC for your domains: take a DMARC trial.
