In order to keep my Service Desk Agents license in control, need your help understanding what is the difference between the steps followed to add a member to the team here:
Service Desk Project -> Invite Team -> Add user name
Versus just adding a person via:
Service Desk Project -> Project Settings -> People -> Add People (Choosing "Service Desk Team" role).
I want to have the Jira Software users be able to collaborate within the Service Desk tickets (which should be at no cost since they are Jira SW licensed already), but it is really confusing how the role for users needs to be set up for this to happen versus the setup for actual licenses Service Desk agents.
Note: I've gone through your documentation and is still not clear, that is why I am asking here.
Service Desk Project -> Invite Team -> Add user name ==> Creates a Agent
Service Desk Project -> Project Settings -> People -> Add People (Choosing "Service Desk Team" role) ==> Just adds a user to a role so that they would inherit the permissions/notifications, etc where the role is specified. The user doesn't become an Agent simply by adding them to the role.
You can use the Service Desk Team role for this purpose if you wish or you could use a group or another role. Your choice. Add the role/group to the desired permissions/notifications, e.g. Browse, Comment, etc....
I would recommend this link. Basically it works if your team member got application access to Jira Service Desk it will require a license. However, if you have people that have application access to Jira Software you can add them to a Jira Service Desk issue with the request participant feature and they are allowed to see the issue but not work with it. That means that they cannot communicate with the customer and not do anything that an agent can do.
To summarize, if you invite a user, make sure they are in the correct groups that has application access to the right application. E.g. put Jira Software users in the groups that has application access to Jira Software and Jira Service Desk users in the groups that has application access to Jira Service Desk. The Jira Software users that collaborates on an issue does not consume a Jira Service Desk license.
