You can do this making some workaround using Extension for JIRA Service Desk. This plugin has many features that can make your JIRA user-friendly. So, there is option to add transition to customer portal to the same status as currently and you can called it "vote". To this transition you can add some postfunction that can increment vote number for example using script in script runner.
You can always write to email@example.com and ask for help how to do it or ask for implement voting in customer portal.
I hope I've helped you.
Hi Daniel, Thanks for your answer. it's very interesting to know that. And awhat about voting for an issue directly in the Service Desk project? I mean as a service desk agent ? is it possible to do that ? I have a free trial version right now and I created some fake issues for which I can vote vut for some other ones I just can't. Thanks Melissa
Until JSD-1743 is resolved, one work-around is to configure the "Introduction text" in Portal Settings and add a hyperlink to a kanban board where users can see the full list of issues and vote on them there. I did this in setting up our idea portal, and I think I like it even better than Service Desk's functionality to let users search for issues created by other people; it actually makes it easier to filter to just the issue type you want them to see. In setting up the kanban board, I just put all statuses in a single column (which prevents drag-n-drop status changing), and I ordered the list by the number of votes.
Here's is my (wiki syntax) text that I entered into the Introduction Text field (note that you will need to replace my sample URL with yours, but don't accidentally delete the pipe | character or the ending closing bracket ] character):
