Is there a way to restrict access to service desk menu items by customer group?

We'd like to be able to restrict certain menu items on the Service Desk for use only by a certain group of customers.  For example, we'd only like to allow department managers to access service desk requests associated with requesting new user account creation.  Is there a way to restrict access in this way?

If a customer has access to a Service Desk, he/she has access to all request types in the customer portal.

Another option would be to set up a separate Service Desk for department managers. If you restrict access to this second Service Desk, then your regular employees (and department managers) will have access to the original Service Desk, but only department managers will have access to the new Service Desk.

I recommend this solution wholeheartedly if you're using Service Desk 2.x, as you will be able to give your customers a "portal of portal" that is a landing page for all customer portals (see the second screenshot). If you're using Service Desk 1.x, then this isn't as elegant a solution, as there's no portal of portals in Service Desk 1.x; your department managers will need to remember two different URLs.

Lindsay's got the right idea. I've seen similar requests with the desire to restrict issues types to certain users. You could read through the comment chain on, but I don't believe there is any plan for this to be standard functionality. 


Their is very cool plugin for this.

By this you can restrict any request types of service desk on group level. Even you can restrict entire service desk by this.
