We have setup our JIRA Service Desk with a single "Incident" request type and choose to categorize it after issue is solved thanks to per-application incident request types for statistics/reporting.
First, these "categorized" request types are "hidden from portal" to prevent user to create them (and to avoid administrator to configure creation form fields for each of them)
But as a side-effect, when a "Incident" ticket has been switched to a specific tool request type, customer user has no longer access to it. And what is strange is that "My requests" counter still report about them !
Definitely "hidden from portal" request types have been designed for email or automation.
What would be an alternative to our way of doing such "single incident" creation form and "categorized request types" for statistics ?
Is there a way to prevent only ticket creation with some specific regular request types (so not "hidden from portal") ? (either with Script Runner or any other plugin)
Thank you in advance for your help
When you move an issue from incident to another issue type, the customer request type will be empty.
You will have to set it manually or create an automation rule for that.
Thanks for the hint. But in our case, we do not "move to another issue type", we only change "Customer Request Type" field value to another request type (which is at the moment "hidden from portal")
Yes in fact, but as we have created one request type per category as "Change Request", we have expected to have similar organisation for "Incident" after categorization by agent.
So adding a select list with category and preset its value in "Change" request types in hidden field would be a proper/homogeneous option I have not thought about at first glance.
Thanks for challenging me again with this idea I rejected initially
