Participants cannot see issue description in portal

Deleted user Jul 03, 2019

My request type for the issue didn't include the description in the fields.

Original request:

We are using Cloud based Jira Service Desk.  I have noticed that if a participant is added to an issue and they use the link in the email notification to view the issue they cannot see the description of the issue in the portal.  Is there a way to allow them to see the full descriptions of the issues?

My current workaround was adding the issue description into the notification email.  That isn't ideal but is working for the time being.

Untitled.pngDouble check your configuration in "Request Types" and make sure that you have the fields all added, based on the screenshot i see it looks like they are only configured to show the summary at the moment

Yep, that did it!  Thank you sir!

Its been quite some time since i had the same issue ....but I believe you can correct this by going into the Service Desk Project > Settings > Customer Permissions > "Who can customers share with" Set the permission to the 3rd option "Any customer or organization, by searching this project. This option allows them to search all customers in the current project."

Then make sure you have Browse project permissions for "Service Desk Customer - Portal Access" 

When the user is added as a Participant they should have a Portal Only account made, or have a pre-existing account which will allow them to view the tickets from the Service Desk project from the portal

Afternoon Shawn, thanks for your response.  I have made the changes you suggested but he issue is still the same.  They can see everything in the portal but the description.

Customers can see everything except the description of the ticket when they are participants still.

Here is what my test user is seeing:



I have the same problem
