Showing the assignee in the web portal

Hi,

Is it somehow possible to see the actual assignee for an issue as a customer in the web portal?

A simple text like "Assignee: Mathias" would be enough.

Kind Regards

Mathias

Hi Mathias,

We do show the assignee on the Service Desk portal for our internal IT service desk.  BUT it's not OOB, we accomplished it using the plugin:

Extension for Jira Service Desk

Hi Susan,

Thank you! I will try that out today!!

Mathias,

It isn't a good practice to have assignee field visible on customer portal.  A number of fields can be added to the request type and given a preset value, but you cannot make them visible on the customer portal:

  • Linked issues
  • Any fields that are defined by other JIRA applications
  • Group, project, and version picker custom fields
  • Assignee

Hi Victor,

so even if we and our customers want this "feature" it will not be possible to make it visible on the customer portal?

Kind Regards

Mathias

Mathias,

Unfortunately no. See the topic on the same link 

Hidden fields and unsupported fields

There's a workaround, but you need the nFeed addon. You can create a nFeed custom field, copy the assignee into this field & keep it updated on any changes & then display the nFeed field in the customer frontend.

Still, not best practice to display the assignee on the frontend.

Best

Hi @JP _AC Bielefeld Leader_ could you please help me understand why it is not best practice to show the assignee on the front end? Would be very helpful. 

Best regards, Jasmijn
