List of values of request-channel-type? Request-channel-type for widget?

I'd like to understand what all the possible valid values are for request-channel-type.  Is it just 'email' and 'portal'?  If so, is the request-channel-type for the widget 'portal'?

Hello,

As far as I know the list of values is (emai, portal, jira). Try to create an issue through the widget and then go to Jira issue navigator and type

request-channel-type in 

You will see all the suggestions for the field. Choose one and see if your created issue was returned by the query. 

Or simply open the created issue in the detailed issue view and in the Service Desk request pannel you will see the Channel field. That would be the request-channel-type.

Hi @Andrew Heinzer

just wanted to add to this post, hope it is the right place

I can see on the page: https://docs.atlassian.com/jira-servicedesk/3.7.1/com/atlassian/servicedesk/api/request/CustomerRequestChannelSource.html

that we now also have the "API" as a channel type.

When retrieving the tickets I also get alot of status "EMPTY" where are those ticket coming from ?

The empty value for request type tends to happen when user are creating issues in that project, but are not using the service desk customer portal, or the project is not using the service desk mail handler to create issues.    It is possible to create non-service desk issues in a service desk project (using the create button in Jira server or the + sign in the current versions of Jira Cloud).  In both platforms this would only happen with licensed Jira users that have permissions to create issues in that project.  It could be a Service Desk agent, or it could be some other Jira Core/Software user that has the create issue permission.

It's also possible to use a Jira core mail handler to create issues in Jira.  Both methods won't set the request type field when creating issues, so they are very problematic for creating issues in service desk.

Hi @Andrew Heinzer

I am talking about Request Channel, but in your answer you are talking about Request Type

Does your answer also apply for the Channel part ?

-Ragnar

The two are directly related.  Forgive me, the Channel field wasn't a thing in older versions of service desk.   I can see now how my previous response isn't clear for your specific question here.

 

Could you clarify your previous statement of

When retrieving the tickets I also get alot of status "EMPTY" where are those ticket coming from ?

Which specific field in Jira is appearing as empty here?  Status? Channnel? Request type?
