when we have a ticket with status "closed" and our customer write a comment via the service desk, we want to change the status in "reopened" automatically. How can we implement this?
Thanking you in anticipation!
There is no way to do it with stock functionality. You'd need to write a custom listener or some API function to do this. The "Comment" function has no native automation around it is the reason why.
Using stock functionality, you could remove the "Add Comment" permission from your user base and only use workflow transitions for everything, though. You could create a custom field to serve as the comment field and force people to run the "Reopen" transition rather than adding a traditional "Comment." That uses built-in functionality and is not difficult to do. You'd need to address the "Comment" function in each workflow status in order to allow users to comment on issues, though. A workflow can transition to the same status, so that's what I typically do when I need to do this type of thing. Hopefully that gives you some ideas.
In JIRA Service desk, you can use automation. (https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskserver031/automating-your-service-desk-802164723.html)
I think one of the preloaded rules is re-open on customer comment, but just in case I'm mistaken about that, I've added my rule.
UPDATE: I was just in there for another reason and one of the templates when you click "Add rule" is reopen on customer comment.
