Does a user need an SD agent license in order to be "assignable" to a SD issue?
I have a user who has been granted ADMIN permissions in JIRA but is unable to be assigned to an issue in Service Desk. Is an agent license required?
Brandon, in addition to the link provided by Bhushan, please refer to the blog entry detailing why the agent model was introduced. http://blogs.atlassian.com/2014/09/introducing-jira-service-desk-2-0/
