This is going to sound like a strange question but how can an outside user get added as a registered Service Desk Customer in Jira Service Desk?
I'm asking because neither me, nor apparently any of my colleagues, setup a particular customer as a user, yet somehow this person used our [still being developed] system to submit a request to us.
We don't want to ask him how he did this because it would make us look foolish but it is indeed a real mystery.
So what are the ways a person could get added as a Jira Service Desk customer?
it is indeed possible for customers to create accounts for themselves. Please take a look at:
You probably have project-level restriction set to Anyone and global account self-creation allowed.
Your supposition is what I initially thought too but when I looked at Customer permissions, here's what I found:
And in Global Permissions we have them just as tightly locked down.
Here's what we now think must have happened, though this is purely a theory at this point:
Our customer also uses Jira Service Desk. When our contact there e-mailed me and another user, somehow within the Atlassian infrastructure, it saw that my e-mail address was registered as the custom contact one with our instance of Jira Service Desk. As such, it then added:
- Our customer (the corporate entity)
- Our contact (an individual with an e-mail address)
as Jira Service Desk customers within our JSD project.
I know this sounds incredible but it's our only possible explanation for how this phenomenon occurred.
