We are using Jira Service Desk at a university, and have thousands of customers visiting our Help Center. Since we have so many customers, some of them have the same name.
Our agents run the risk of adding the wrong person when trying to add a Request participant by name alone, and potentially causing a security issue.
Maybe other people in the community have found a way to deal with this limitation?
How are other large organizations, who have customer information that must be secure and private dealing with this?
Thanks for any ideas you might have!
Hello @Sharon Helms
Thank you for reaching out.
Indeed, Jira does not display the email of the users in User picker fields at the new issue view of Jira Cloud, and we completely understand that this lack is very impactful when having multiple customers with the same name.
While our PMs and developers work to get this lack addressed, we have the following recommendations for you:
For other JSD admins facing the same problem and looking for a solution in Community, we still do not have an ETA to have it fixed, so we ask you to vote and watch the Bug provided by @Sharon Helms to increase its priority and also receive notifications about any updates or other possible workarounds.
Let us know if you have any questions.
We often have questions from folks using Jira Service Management about the benefits to using Premium. Check out this video to learn how you can unlock even more value in our Premium plan. &nb...
