How do I add additional recipients to an individual ticket ?

Wondering how I might add recipients to a ticket; eg. is the reporter but I think should be aware of this issue.

I have tried just adding them in a reply email, however this will only include them in that particular email... not permanently add them to all communication on the ticket.

Thanks in advance for any help :)

Hi @Phil Burke 

In Jira Service Management, you can share the ticket with other users via the Request Participants field. This can be Jira users, or just any another email address.

You can do it one of two ways:

  • Agent View: Locate the ticket in Jira, find the field and modify it. Note that the user must exist in Jira, or the email must be attached to a customer first for this to work.
  • Customer View: On the ticket in the portal, press + Share on the right-hand side and enter a name, organisation or an email address.


Sorry to revive this issue after so long, but this isn't working. I can't remember if I tested it at the time, but I'm trying to do it now, but there is no email being received by the particpant. I have 'created' a service request on behalf of another account (reporter) and also added that account to the participant. Neither of these methods sends an email to the participant/ reporter.

Hello @Phil Burke - you are only able to assign a ticket to a single user but you are able to add others at Watchers. By being a watcher, these users are notified of any activity that is performed on the ticket (as outlined in the project notification settings for the Watcher role). 

Also, when making comments in the ticket, you can mention anyone you want to be informed of the comment you are adding for transparency.

I cannot see 'watcher' anywhere. Is this something I have to turn on ?

I found 'watchers' but cannot add an email unless they are already in the system. How would I go through and add all my clients ? this seems like a cumbersome process...


On reviewing this... it appears that I can only add Jira users. This defeats the purpose.

Thanks guys, much appreciated.
