We have 2 persons where one gets a mail from support portal with a link that allows him to reply directly to customers.
Both persons is added to a ticket as participants.
The other person does not get this noticification mail, and there fore no ling.'Trying to reply from jiar only allow him to make an internal note ,
What is the cause for this difference.
Hi @Jørgen Chr Hansen , welcome to the Community. First just to get the terminology right so that we are on the same page...
Request Participants - JSD Customer that is participating in (observing/commenting) on an issue reported by another Customer.
Watcher - JSD user that has direct application access and can see all of the underlying info.
Assignee - JSD agent that is responsible for working the issue to closure.
An Agent can make public or internal comments.
A Watcher (non-agent) can only make internal comments.
A Customer (reporter or request participant) can only make public comments. Customer will only receive notifications for public comments.
with all that said can you characterize your issue and identifying your users and who can't do what?
Hi @Jørgen Chr Hansen sorry for the delay in getting back. Before diving in I wanted to mention to keep replies w/in this answer to ensure the thread remains clean vs. using the "Suggest an Answer" button.
Here is some info you should consider:
please explain what you mean by participant and try to keep in mind my above role definitions. Internal (non-customer) Jira users w/ Browse permissions should be Watchers not Request Participants. Request Participants should only be customers.
Thanks for the fast reply.!
The answer confirms my idea how it works.
Here is our senario in more details
I'm one of the company Agents, i see an incomming ticket from an external customer.
I evaluate the ticket and find the colleague that can reply to the ticket.
I assign the colleague to the ticket as a participant. And write an internal note asking the participant to reply to on the ticket. I expect that an internal note is send to assigned participants only.
I have 2 colleagues DC and EE they are both assigned to a ticket, not the same ticket.
DC receives a mail from supportportal that has links that allows him to reply directly to the customer with a public note.
EE does not get this mail, often he is not niticed. Sometimes he gets a outlook mail with the top of the ticket inserted and the ticket ID (SP-xxx) in the top as a link that will open our jira system.
EE is listed as a participant in the jira system but he never receives the support portal e-mail and in the jira system he is only allowed to make internal notes.
While DC by using the link in the support portal mail can reply directly.
I'm a little confused about how to assign a participant. I have done i 2 different ways. In the basic view there is a field in the right coloum called participant. if i select the field and type the e-mail abriviation for the colleague the field gets autofilled. There is no real confirmation action (or i have not found it).
The other way is to select more fields at the bottom of the screen then a field called requested paricipant appears. Then i do the same here as with the participant field.
Is there a difference between the 2 ways to assign a participant.
