Jira Service Desk - Create issue in Jira project based on group

F.e. we have a customer for which we have 2 jira projects. On the support desk I added 2 groups, based on which group they make f.e. a bug request the issue has to be created in Project X or Project Y.


How can I add a conditional that allows me to separate them?

As far as I understand, you want to limit issue types based on user groups. It is not possible.

I'd like to seperate them based on the service desk groups ( see screenshot)Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 11.59.05.png

It is not possible. Here is the ticket:

Maybe a hack around it but -> is it possible to give a feature a hidden label field and based on that hidden label make the differentiation between the 2 projects like I did in the screenshots?


Doesn't seem to work, but maybe I'm doing something wrong.Screen Shot 2018-05-15 at 12.59.29.pngScreen Shot 2018-05-15 at 12.59.17.png

I thought you wanted to hide certain request types for certain groups in the Portal. It can not be done in the Portal. But you can change the value of the request type field to the one you need, depending on the user group, in a post function. I think you can do it with ScriptRunner.

Sorry I think there is some confusion in terms, I'm new to this. 


So I have 2 groups, both groups have 3 request types. When a ticket is created it should be created in its corresponding Jira project. 


F.e. User creates ticket in Group X -> Issue gets created in Jira Project X

F.e. User creates ticket in Group Y -> Issue gets created in Jira Project Y


That's why in the above screenshot I tried to add a hidden label field -> to each request type in both groups. I wanted to make conditionals based on these labels. But doesn't seem to work. 

f.e. Group BD Website get the hidden label field 'BDWEB' & Group BD cloud gets hidden label 'BHC'. 


So no hiding is necessary based on the user or group, the problem now is the creation of Jira project issues. 

Ah, I see. I would avoid this solution. It is not simple to move issues between projects programmatically. Maybe you can use components instead of projects? You can read about components here:

Hi Nick,

A condition will not be possible but maybe a validation is? The bad thing about this is that they would go throught the process of creating the issue for later get an error message saying they are not able to create an issue there, but at least you can limit the functionality.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
