When a request is pending for approval, it is expected Approvers ask for details/motivation to customer.
My current custom workflow faces following issue: customer's answer to approver's question as a request comment is not forwarded to approver.
Notification Scheme is not an option, as approvers are no longer interested in receiving customer/agent comments after approval.
Is this a generic Service Desk limitation or is my setup incomplete?
Have you got ideas how to implement such "comment forward to approvers" feature in JIRA ServiceDesk either with Automation rule, Adaptavist Script Runner or any additional plugin?
Thank you in advance
My suggestion would be to set up an custom Automation rule that has the following Conditions:
This way, the automation rule would only notify the Approvers under specific conditions without them being spammed by notifications.
Hope this helps
The "Alert User" action requires to hardcode user accounts, I cannot alert users in "Approvers" custom field.
The same way "Send an email" only proposes "Reporter (customer)" and "Customers involved"... https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/managing-service-desk-notifications-732528936.html
I wonder if an option may be to enlist "Approvers" into "Request participants" only for the "approval" phase...
Did you managed to solve this problem?
I have the same situation here.
I need to find a way to send the comment added to the approver, however, the notification rule does not allow adding the comment variable into the notification.
I have already added the approvers field on the notification scheme, under the Issue Commented" event, but the approver is not listed on the e-mail sent.
