Add more than just 1 email in the "email confirmation to" field


I am Puspa and I am new to JIRA Service Management. I noticed that there's this box that will notify that the ticket is created by them/any progress will be notified to the said email.

My question is, is it possible to have 2 or more email filled in this, so that 2 or more people will get progress on the status of the ticket?


Thank you

Hello @Puspacinantya,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

When letting the portal open for customers to create tickets without logging in, the “Email confirmation to” field will be the same as the Reporter field.

On a ticket, it’s possible to select only one reporter. With this said, it will not be possible to add more than one email address on the “Email confirmation to”.

A ticket can be shared with someone else after it has been created, but in this case, it will require the customer to log in to the portal to access the ticket or you, as an agent or admin to access the ticket via the portal and use the “+ Share” field or, if the account already exists on the site, you can just add them using the Request Participants field in Jira:

If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.

​​Kind regards,

Hi @Angélica Luz ,


Is there any way to switch off or hide the field "email confirmation to" completely?

The background to my question is that we want to conduct anonymous customer surveys on a Jira Service Management instance (cloud). That's why we have a portal that allows anonymous access. With this field it is not possible to carry out anonymous surveys.

Hello @Ben Kampen,

Thank you for reaching out to the Community!

When the portal is open for anyone, the field will automatically appear, it’s not a normal custom field that can be removed from the screen, so it will not be possible to disable it.

There is a feature request suggesting the implementation of this ability:
