Hide issue view from customer portal

I have a particular issue type (i.e. Problem) which only internal users create, so there is no form on the portal to raise this issue type.  These issues can be associated with customers (via the Organization field).

Some of these issues I want to show to the customers to which the issue is associated, but I want to hide other issues. I want to set this manually in the issue.

I created to Request Types, "Track Problem" and "Untrack Problem".

Neither request types have a submission form, which is good.  However, both show in the list of Requests for a customer. What does the "Hidden from Portal" tag mean.

I only what the "Track Problem" request type to be listed. I created the "Untrack Problem" type so I can hide an issue previously set to "Track Problem" to remove it from the Portal.

How can I hide a request type from the view element of the Portal (i.e. Request list)?

Many thanks

if it is marked as hidden it should not show in the list of available request types. Did you go into Portal Groups and ensure the request type is not included?

I think I'm missing a config setting as in the Portal Groups for the project with these issues types there are no requests, so not sure how any issues are showing.  I don't want customers to raise these types of requests in the portal but I do want them to see particular requests which I enable.

Removing a request form from a portal group will lead to it's status "Hidden from Portal".
From your last screenshot I am wondering if there should be request forms (for example at least the "Track Problem" one).
Apart from that I cannot recognize any further misconfiguration - it should work.

How does the portal from a customer's view currently look like? Did I understand it right that both request forms are enlisted while they show for you "Hidden from Portal"?

Mark, something is definitely amiss. As you stated, and you image shows you have no request types listed. Are you sure you are looking at the same project and group?

I am having exactly the same problem - I have certain issue type/request types that I do not want to show in the customer portal at all. I have unchecked all the portal groups - so these are now showing as "hidden from portal" - but all this seems to do is remove these request types from the ticket creation in the portal - existing tickets still show on the list for this customer and I dont understand why?

I could remove the value(s) from the "Organizations" field so these arent exposed to any customers, but that field is being used to filter list of issues internally on various dashboards etc, so I am loath to do that.

Has anyone figured out how to do this yet?
