Does a user need an SD agent license in order to be "assignable" to a SD issue?

Does a user need an SD agent license in order to be "assignable" to a SD issue?

I have a user who has been granted ADMIN permissions in JIRA but is unable to be assigned to an issue in Service Desk. Is an agent license required?

To answer your question: Yes, an Agent license is required in order to be an "assignable" user on a SD issue.

Many customers, us included, are frustrated by this limitation of JIRA Service Desk 2.0.

You can read about it and consider voting on this issue:
