I have just started using the JIRA Service Desk (server version) trial.
I want to create drop down boxes, underneath the request type or issue type drop down boxes, to divide those types into sub-categories.
For example, under IT Help, I want sub-categories for "Hardware" and "Software".
The Hardware sub-category would be further divided into sub-categories for "Desktop PC", "Laptop", "Monitor", etc.
Similarly, the Software sub-category would further divided into several types different types of software.
I will also want to get reports on these sub-categories to find out how many issues have been logged in each category over a given time period.
Can someone tell me whether any of this is possible in JIRA Service Desk? Thanks.
I would create something like this –
IT Help Desk Portal
You can then run Reports on Request Type or Issue Type, which ever makes more sense to your set up. Personally I'd make all Hardware Requests one issue type and all Software Requests one issue type, using Service Desk Request Types to give the user the appropriate screens.
Am I correct in thinking this requires some JIRA programming, as described in this online tutorial?
I am not a developer so I don't have the expertise to follow this tutorial. JIRA Service Desk may not be the solution I'm looking for.
Thanks for your help.
