Sharing Service Desk Issues Between Customers


Recently I've encountered a question with Service Desk I haven't given much thought to. After looking through Answers for similar, I figured its about time I create something.

The Question: Is it possible to share issues between "Customers" in Service Desk 2.0?

So, say I had Customer A who is part of Customer B's team. They do not have local accounts in JIRA, they are only able to access and create issues through the Customer Portal. Customer B creates an issue: SD-1. Customer A would like to be updated on that issue and contribute to or view the request itself. 

Without opening up the security scheme, is there a way to identify "Customers" on Service Desk 2.0 into groups to allow them to see certain issues? If not, is this planned?

Thanks for reading!

Awesome, thanks for that--that's exactly what I wanted to see. Well, I would have really loved to see that I was just missing something... but this works ;).
