"Signup is not currently available" but global and project signup is configured Edited


I'd like to let our users send an email to our support mail address and create automatically a jira issue of this. According to the documentation I need to allow in the global settings (service desk 3.8.3, jira software 7.5.2) public signup: Applications -> jira service desk ->Configuration: Public signup = yes.

In the system settings, the mode of jira software can remain private (also tried it with public, does change nothing).

Then, in the service desk project und "Customer Permisisons" I defined that anyone can open requests: "Who can raise requests" -> "Anyone can email the service desk or raise a request in the portal". An email address is configured and the inbox can be read. However: no ticket is generated when I send an email (from another address). The log states "Signup is not currently available".

It works when I manuall add a customer for this email address.

Can anybody help me what I've done wrong? Or is this simply a bug in the latest version (service desk installed through the wizard within jira)?

Thank you very much!

And when I want to register on the portal page as a new customer I get the same error message:

Finally a hint about users not able to change their passwords helped me solving this problem:

I changed the order of the users directories: first the internal jira directory and then our own ldap (where the jira user has no write permissions).

In my opinion it should be noted in the documentation WHERE public signup users are saved.

Hi Aurelius,

Thanks for sharing this!

I'm facing exactly the same issue, but using JIRA Cloud, thus I can't log in using "System Administrators" global permission (which seems to be reserved for JIRA Support staff!)

Just contacted JIRA support about the issue, although any hints how to solve this for a JIRA Cloud account are appreciated!
