Creating task from request for Jira


i was setting up my first Jira Service Management Project and we're using Jira Service Management Cloud and Jira Server.
Is it possible to create a task in Jira from the request out of the Service Desk (as an own task according to the Service Desk ticket)? Or do i have to create the task separatly in Jira and link it afterwards from the Service Desk to the created Jira Issue?

Yes, it is possible via custom WF post-function call.  In our On-Prems DC env for both JSM and Jira Software, we uses this add-on (a functions riched add-on for Jira env) to auto create issue (task in Jira project) when a JSM ticket is created at JSM ticket creation time.  In the same post-function call we also create the issue links.

Jira Misc Workflow Extensions.

However, I believe you have an issue where your JSM is in CLOUD env and your Jira is in a different env (Server).  I would recommend that you reach out to Atlassian Support directly to see how to integrate between CLOUD/SERVER envs (Using application link between those apps?).  NOTE - Jira Server env will be reaching end of life at 2024 based on Atlassian's announcement.  You will need to move to Jira Data Center model soon or migrate to CLOUD.

Hope this helps.
