Is there a way to pre-populate the users email address in the Jira Service Desk widget?
Currently when users want to create an incident using the form, they have to enter their email addresses each time they complete the form. Our users have requested if we can pre-populate the email field in the widget.
See pic below:
There is no way to do that. that is what the Portal if for, knowing who is opening a ticket. If you had a webpage where the customer first logged in then you might be able to populate the field via the API. But again, that is analogous to the Portal.
Thanks for your reply.
We do have Authorisation in our web application, so assume we would be able to populate the field with the users details. However, I've taken a look at the API documentation and can't find out how to do so. Could you point me in the right direction please?
No you cannot disable that field. A valid email address is absolutely required in order to create an issue. Every issue inside Jira must be associated with a user and that user is based on an email address.
The one thing that the widget gives you is A form-based manner in which a person can open an issue without having to log into the portal. While a person could open an issue via email without logging into the portal it is not form-based. The only thing an email captures is the subject in the body which resolves to the summary and the description of an issue.
