Trigger sla to an issue based on customer who created it?

Is it possible to make the customer or customer organization the trigger for an SLA to an issue?

e.g. can I configure an SLA so that it is triggered based on which customer created the issue?

@Matt Hackett -

Based on what I know of it, you should be able to constructed the proper JQL to query on the organization field when you setup the GOAL portion of an SLA setup.


We have not tried that type of setup yet in our env, so I cannot 100% that it will work.  Let me know of your test result.

Thanks Joseph,

It's true you can add an Organization as a trigger using JQL, but the problem seems to be that Organizations can't have fields applied to them; so e.g. you can't construct a JQL query that would trigger an SLA based on it being created by any Organization of type x.

This means that every separate Organization would have to to be added after an OR function in the JQL query to make the trigger apply to all of those orgs. It seems like you'd have to update the query every time you added another customer org, which obviously would be impractical.

So far I've gotten around it by creating a multiple service-level field that applies different SLA rules. But those fields have to be manually applied to an issue by an agent after it is created by the customer, so it's not convenient over the long term.

Hi @Matt Hackett 

If Organisation`s name is in the custom field of tickets, you can try SLA Time and Report.

It allows set for SLA start/stop conditions any issue fields, inclusion Organisation.


Hope it will help you
