What is the appropriate approach for having a SecondLine support tier.
The new issues need to be in a FirstLine queue, and the Agent must be able to refer the issue to the SecondLine queue if she cannot resolve promptly.
It would be good to hear suggestions as to how this is best mapped to JIRA ServiceDesk.
Robin, building on what Jonas said here, however, It appears that the escalation would be done internally (by Tier-1 agent) not externally (by customer). If that is the case then it is pretty straightforward but the details depend on your specific scenario and current configuration. With that said, i would approach as follows.
there are a number of things you can do to further the basics above, e.g. use Automation to automatically notify the customer w/ a comment that it has been escalated or add a new SLA metric that is unique for escalations, etc.
hope this helps.
I would build an escalation process with workflows that simply allowed the customer to click "escalate" and the workflow would transition or even move the issue to another project. Depends if you want to keep it all in one project still. If that's the case i would simply put up a couple of users that are associated with emails from distribution lists in exchange which would be assigned issues on escalations. Once a level 2 agent gets the notification, he can login and assign the issue to himself. Que's could be set up using dashboards that show issues still not assigned to any agents. This will also allow you to keep the JSD agent count low, as only a handful of shared users would be "agents" and regular users would assign themselfs the issues through jira.
