I have a new Service Desk project with a workflow that requires approval. In the form there is a drop down with all users for the project. Agents in the Service Desk Team role can see the names in the drop down, but end users who are in the Service Desk Customer role only see a blank box with no names.
End users see the Approvers box with no text and no autocomplete on names.
Agents see "Search for a user" in and do have autocomplete on names.
What permissions are needed to allow end users to search/add names?
I have the same problem and my configuration is as suggested.
It happens that the approvers field does not bring any results unless the user has a Jira Service Desk license assigned.
However, for issue types that do not have a form assigned, the field works correctly, so I understand that the problem is not in the user permissions.
How can i fix this?
Our organization receives requests from thousands of users that require approval from internal users that must be selected by the client.
jira allows this but apparently not proforma.
And we can't assign a license to each one.
@Thorsten Letschert _Decadis AG_ tip is a good one for user fields displayed by JSD. The only downside is that it can leave your portal open to snooping or harvesting of emails addresses, particularly where other anonymous users have just left their email address and not created an account (see the screenshot below).
The issue with ProForma and why it acts differently to JSD is that Atlassian has created a unique user lookup function for JSD, which as a Marketplace App ProForma cannot access. ProForma has to use the documented Jira APIs, and unfortunately, the official user-search API does not return any results for users that do not have access to Jira (i.e. anonymous or portal customer accounts).
As of August 2020, we are working on addressing this limitation by allowing people to specify their own data-connection/user-lookup; however, it is still in progress, and I can't give a definite release date, but I would hope it is before the end of 2020.
Thanks for the answer but I don't think you have completely understood me.
I'm not talking about anonymous accounts, all of our clients have an account. what they don't have is a Jira Service Desk license.
The Jira Service desk documented API returns users perfectly when invoked with those users.
Another option that I think PROFORMA should have is to be able to choose a user to communicate with jira (on behalf of) as other apps have, such as AUTOMATION FOR JIRA.
It's good advice, please take it.
Regarding the proposed solution, it does not work for us. Because we have the approvers field within a conditional section, since not all options require approval.
If we must leave it out of PROFORMA, it no longer fulfills its function and is one of the functions for which we acquired the app.
Without this I think we will have to cancel our subscription, since the cost is not justified for us, because that functionality is very important to us.
My most regret is that we have spent countless hours customizing dozens of forms for a service desk with thousands of users that we cannot launch yet.
Thanks for your kind attention.
Thanks for your feedback @jira integración We do understand the pain you are facing and it is definitely one of our priorities to fix. The idea of using data connections to build your own user lookup will allow you to specify which user/credentials to use and should also allow you set limits on the user search such as group names.
I'll post here when we have more information on the progress of developing a workaround and I'm sorry I can't offer you a solution right now.
Thank you very much for your kind attention.
I will await your next responses attentively.
I trust that you will soon be able to solve this impediment.
In general the product works very well, it only needs these small adjustments and we will be able to exploit its full potential.
Thanks again and sorry if my English is not quite correct.
