Is it possible to have Customer Portal for Software project?


We have separate instances for Jira Software (Server edition) and Jira Service Management (DC edition) and are planning to migrate Jira Software to Data Center and have both Jiras in one instance to have a synergy effect.

Is it possible to open Customer Portal also for Software projects or is it possible only for Service projects?



A portal is only possible in Service projects, not in Jira Software.

Hi @Przemysław Grzesiak ,

Customer portal is only available for Service projects. 

Jira software and Jira service management both can be in one server.  Details mentioned in

Portal UI is only available for JSM.  However, there are other ways such as embedding Jira Software project create issue URL in your Web UI (not Portal UI).  The key is that users of Jira Software (i.e. Customers) will require a license for the product versus JSM customers are free.

Thank you all for the responses. Looks like I thought that only "Service" projects can be included in Customer portal. That is clear to me that Customer Portal is a feature of JSM and is not possible to have one for Jira Software. However we had a discussion within our team about a situation where Jira Software and JSM applications installed an the same instance, within the same Jira framework. In this case we will have service projects next to software projects and we were wondering if in such case it will be possible to mix software and service projects in Portal.

As far as I know same case is with kanban/scrum boards which are part of Jira Software but when you have both application on one instance you can place service projects on boards.

@Przemysław Grzesiak  The projects are displayed in portal when the project type is only "Service desk"

I agreed with @Rilwan Ahmed statement.  The portal UI setup/access is only for JSM projects (even if you have both Jira Software and JSM hosted under the same site).

Best, Joseph
