Grant request participants permission to "add comments"

I have added a user to a service desk request as an request participant ("Michael Conz (Privat)" in attached screenshots). If an agent ("Michael Conz" in screenshots) comments something the participant gets an email notification and if he replies to it, the server won't process his answer as a comment because the participant has no rights to add comments to this request.

What configurations do I have to change, to grant request participants the required permissions? We are using JIRA Cloud. I will attach some Screenshots that hopefully provide enough information to show the current configuration and errors.

Best regards,
Michael Conz

Hi Michael,

Looking at your screenshots, only the reporter, assignee or a user in one of that project roles, informed in the Permission Helper, have the ability to comment in the issues.

If you add the user to the "Service Desk Team" role, it should work and the user should be able to add comments.
