I want to use JIRA Service Desk with a Confluence KB.
In https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskserver036/serving-customers-with-a-knowledge-base-921471856.html it says that the "Users who don't have a Confluence licence can't create content, but you can give them permission to view your knowledge base content for free."
This is exactly what I need - but I am not sure how to do it correctly.
I know that:
What do I want?
I simply want that customers can...
Any suggestions on how to do that?
Thanks - I voted for it.
However, there it says...
Well, although this should be the instruction for JSD Server it looks like this is meant for JSD Cloud.
This means, yes I want them to explicitly log in to Confluence to gain read-only access without using a Confluence license. We want to have the Confluence license only for our agents, and authors of the Confluence KB. It would not be good if we need licenses for hundreds of customers.
Marcus, this article has instructions for setting up authenticated "customer" accounts for Service Desk users to gain Confluence KB access: Guide to link Knowledge Base to JIRA Service Desk for unlicensed user
The customers will also be able to search, if I read the article correctly. Please let me know if there is something in your use case that is not satisfied by this method.
There are still problems ... I just do not get it running and I am not sure if it is even meant to be.
I would like that a "JIRA Service Desk Server" customer can access the entire KB space.
Accessing the help center and previewing KB articles out of Confluence works already.
The problem is that the customer should be able to access read-only the Confluence Space that implies the Knowledge Base linked to JIRA Service Desk.
The Confluence Space must not be public, thus login is absolutely required for that.
For Cloud this seems to be definitely possible if converting the user accounts to Atlassian accounts, c.f., https://confluence.atlassian.com/cloud/manage-jira-service-desk-customer-accounts-913213935.html
However, my challenge is to make it running on JIRA SD + Confluence Server.
Anything on that?
I requested directly from the Product Manager of Service Desk who I met at Summit as well as some of his colleagues whom I know well. Unfortunately no response as of yet. I think a lot of the problem is that this has to cross over two products Jira and Confluence to figure out how to make this happen.
I told them quite frankly that Service Desk comes in very low on the KB scale when you look at Zendesk and Service Cloud (Salesforce) that all have these full scale (free to customers) KB built in.
