Hello! I want to know what line is there between Agents and other people in the Jira Software Core version that also have access to the Jira Service Desk (added as customers). Becouse my colleagues can look and edit in the Support project. Whats the different between them and the "Agents" so to say? How do I know if we have to pay for the colleagues as well? Whats the restriction?
Thank you for reaching out.
The Jira Software and Service desk are two different sets of functionalities that run based on a common application: Jira Core. Each application access gives you a set of functionalities and permissions in Jira.
That being said, please allow me to provide you the exact actions and permissions each user type (Application access) has in your Jira site so we can confirm we are on the same page. Considering a Jira site with all applications (Jira Core/Software and Service Desk), you have the following application access:
1 - Jira Core/Software users: These users have access to all the Software project's functionalities (Boards, Releases, etc). In Service desk projects, they can still access it using the internal interface of Jira as a Collaborator, where the user will have some limitations and cannot work directly with the customers. Specifically, a core/software user can perform the following actions in SD projects:
2 - Agents: These users can access JIRA Service Desk specific features (Queues, SLAs, etc), and are allowed to make public comments in JIRA Service desk projects and effectively work with the customers, something that Jira Core/software users cannot do.
3 - Customers: They can only access the customer portal of Jira SD and create tickets, interacting with the Agents and optionally sharing it with other customers.
For more details about what features each application can/cannot access, you can check the documentation below:
Let us know if you have any questions.
If you need to set time to SLA for Jira Core/Software users and save your company spending, you can consider SLA Time and Report.
Add-on works for Jira Software, Jira Core and Service Desk issues and users. It counts SLA time for issues from Service Desk, but cannot configure it.
Hope it will help.
