Can I display the "Reason for On-Hold" to the customer on the customer portal inside each ticket?

I would like to display the "Reason for On-Hold" to the customer when they are viewing their ticket on the customer portal. So it should show up inside each ticket when the customer is viewing the ticket.

Also, I would like to show the "Assignee" name inside each of the tickets when the customer is viewing their tickets.

Are these possible please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Karim Khoja ,

If you are open to using addons, you can have a look at our app: Advanced Portal Reports.

It will allow you to show any Jira field on the Customer view in the portal (incl. Assignee, any custom field) and it also provides your customers (portal users) with a table report where they can see, search, filter and export all their Jira Service Management tickets, including many additional details (incl. SLAs, custom fields, etc.), with a very simple UI. If it sounds helpful you can try it free for 30 days.

Hi @Karim Khoja and welcome to the Community!

While you cannot show these fields on the customer portal, you can use comments to share information with your customer and automation to share the information automatically when you assign the issue to someone or put it on hold.

While I would personally not necessarily not share who is assigned to an issue (as long as a ticket gets resolved, it does not really matter to the customer who does it, usually), you could technically set up a rule like this:

In a similar fashion, you can also share the reason why an issue was put on hold. Assuming the reason for on-hold is a custom field you fill out, you can refer to it using a smart value as well. Your comment could be something like this:

Dear user. We have put your request on hold for the following reason:

{{issue.Reason for On-Hold}}

Hope this helps!
