We are using Active Directory to manage users for Jira. All users are, by default, clients to the service desk. If we want to all users to share issues, within the enterprise (and not the world at large) we want to use the restriction, "user can share with organization".
There is no default organization (why not?), so I have created one. There appears to be no solution for assigning all jira users, all AD users, all members of the domain by email address or any variation. This seems to leave me manually adding each current user, which will send them a confusing email, then adding each new AD user when they are created and removing each AD user when they leave the organization.
Is it really this cumbersome or am I missing something. I am going through the documentation but it seems to talk ABOUT users and organization without giving much concrete information about actually managing this.
Hi @Allan Ross
Yes it is irritating that Jira doesn't have a user group and organizations associations. Nor email domain and organization association. Altho it is a basic feature in many other service desks however it is missing from Jira.
The easiest way to achieve this on Jira is to use an app like
Suggestion, You may disable jira email when you add all users to an organization in the beginning
So the options, to implement a very basic feature, are:
1. manually enter every email address and manually maintain the list as users join and leave the organization.
2. paste the initial list of email addresses and then manually maintain the list as users join and leave the organization.
3. Pay for a 3rd party product and learn how to use it to determine if it is the right tool for the job.
And I suppose 4. get a better ticket system.
There's no harm in upgrading your infrastructure. However you may find a better substitute for JSD, but it won't be long until you reach a new limitation!
I've helped so many organizations with their with their ticketing system, and I stumbled across alot of limitations on each tool, however the beauty about Jira is there was always a workaround. It might cost you some dollars sometimes, it might need a littler learning. but at least in the end you will be able to have it!
I hope you go for Tinker for JSD since it is the cheapest and the easiest. And it is our plugin :-)
