Looking for a way to set up the company "Portal" to allow entry of issues into a Sofware project OR to allow an easy transition from a service-desk issue into a software project.
Best practices for getting the issue from company user over to a developer without a middle-man re-typing the issue into the dev project.
This is a bit of a bug-bear in JIRA Service Desk.
The problem is that you absolutely do *not* want to move an issue from a Service Desk into a Software project. If you do that, it looks to the customer like you have deleted their JSD request, which is, at best, confusing, and at worst, looks rude and ignorant!
There is no simple fix for this without add-ons, but the later versions of JSD do have options for "create issue in other project from this request" for the Agents to hit when they need it - this clones most of the issue into the target project and links them together. It's not fully automated (as in updates in dev don't flow into the JSD and vice versa), but it's moving that way.
As Nic stated moving JSD ticket to JSW is a bad idea. That said, this question comes up very often and I hope that Atlassian comes up with a slick implementation some day. For now I have copied and pasted in my response to this question from last week below.
