Administrator missing in the Customers list Edited


in the Customers is this note:

Everyone with an account on this Jira instance is a customer.

Every User I have in the project is listed there beside one user. His role is just 'administrator'.  

  • Why is this guy missing in the customer list?
  • Why is it possible for this guy to raise requests?

Thanks a lot for helping understanding this! :)


In addition:

When I click on the Customer Permissions there is this option selected:

Customers who have an account on this Jira site

  • What is  the 'Jira site'? Is this the 'Jira instance'?

Hello @Hannes-83 

From this link you can read about different roles, i've taken this quote from link: "Customers are users submitting requests in Jira Service Desk who are free and unlimited. They are essentially any user in Jira Service Desk who is not an agent. For example, you can add a Jira Software to any Jira Service Desk project as a customer. A user who has no application access is also considered a customer." 

This means that since the administrator got an account in the jira instance, he is also allowed to raise requests. If you want to limit the people who can raise request you need to change the settings in customer permission to be project specific. You don't need to add him in the customer list, since he got an account he is still considered a customer even though he's not in the list.

And the "Jira site" is the Jira instance as you may have guessed. I hope that solves your issue.

Best regards,
