Exciting but scary and not entirely clear.
I am currently a SD on Demand customer, and I see that Atlassian are aligning themselves on Zendesk for the pricing structure.
I am still not clear at all about the differences between agents and collaborators.
For example, can a collaborator take the issue through its lifecycle, or only an agent can? what if the lifecyle/workflow is entirely customised, which is my case?
and what of JIRA admins? can't they access everything? are they a collaborator or don't have to be?
My understanding is that bar using the SD UI with SLA reporting, view and config, customer portal, and knowledge base (i don't use Confluence), then agent and collaborators are pretty much the same?
In JIRA Service Desk 2.0 a service desk project has 3 roles:
I hope that makes things a bit clearer. If you have more questions about JSD 2.0 or how it might work with your setup, then feel free to post them here and I'll try to help out.
Designer, JIRA Service Desk
Agents can continue to work within JIRA views (e.g. JIRA Agile) and transition/edit issues as normal.
Regarding JSD-43: If you embed attachments in a comment, these will be visible to Customers. As of 2.0 this also works with non-image attachments (JSD-643 is resolved).
Regarding JSD-40: Can you briefly share your use case? What sort of transitions do your Customers do?
Hi Judd, thanks for confirming that
can you clarify whether Agents can work within the JIRA view and transition from there, or have to go to the service desk to do that? I am using JIRA Agile to transition everything, including Service Desk at the moment
Finally, given that customers will not have access to other areas of JIRA, there are 2 bugs/change requests that are deal breakers for me, as at the moment, taking customers to JIRA is the only (painful) workaround i found
As an existing customer i'm not happy with the new pricing model.
We have 10000 User JIRA license and our developers are all assignable user. That means we have more than 100 Agents. This will double our license costs.
Yes we can stay on the old license but then, we have a Service Desk that not contains all features. (People tab or Comments to the customer or internal)
I write more in the comments section of your blog post: http://blogs.atlassian.com/2014/09/introducing-jira-service-desk-2-0
Hi! Agents - can work on the requests raised by customers (via Customer portal). Yes as you said they can make use of SD UI. Collaborators - Cannot make use of the SD UI. They can 'view the' request (issue) in JIRA and can comment on the issues. But, these comments remain internal and are not visible to the 'reporter' who raised the ticket.
