We use Jira Cloud
I have set up a Custom Field User Picker (single user) and no users appear in the field when I add it to a service desk issue type in the customer portal and view it as a unlicensed user or as the site admin.
I then updated the field to have a filter for Confluence Users and only 6 people showed in the list when there are 128 Confluence users set up.
I then created a test group with 4 people in it and only 1 person was in the drop down.
Please explain how this field works.
I want to use it so that unlicensed users on the customer portal can select their manager that will then be used as the approver for their request in the service desk project.
There are two settings that may be affecting the field to work correctly.
As you mentioned that you as a site-admin can't find users, you must go to Jira Settings > System > Global Permissions and check who have permission to Browse users and groups and you can add or remove the groups that will have this permission or set it to "Anyone".
Also, as it's a service desk project, please go to the Project settings > Customer permissions and select the option below:
Please, give it a try and let us know how it goes.
Thank you very much for the help provided. Getting closer to what we are tying to do.
The User Picker is not showing the group that I have added as the filter for the User Picker field. I updated the field to remove the filter and now I can see all People for the service desk project whether they have any license or not in the drop down.
I then added the group back to the User Picker field.
There are 5 people in the group - 3 are in People and have a license, and 1 is in People but no license and is a Customer Portal users and 1 is not in People but is a licensed user.
When I view the User Picker now - there are only 3 people showing all of which have licenses. The 1 unlicensed Customer Portal user that appeared with no filter is now not showing even though they are in the group and neither is the licensed user that is in the group.
Does everyone in the User Picker dropdown have to be listed in People for the project? If so why isn't the Customer Portal only user not showing when the group filter is applied?
Yes, with the new updates in Jira customers can find only other customers and users that were added in the project.
All users listed on People and customers listed in the customers' list will appear for them in the field.
Can you please check if the customer is showing on the customers' page?
Just to make sure that we are on the same page, I'll post here the steps for adding a specific list of users on a user picker field:
I used those steps and tested by adding users that don't have a license and are added in the role "Service Desk Customers", and it works when I search in the customer portal.
So, basically as per my tests, they don't need to have a license, but at least they must be added in the People page on the role "Service Desk Customers".
Hi, thanks for these steps @Angélica Luz ...
Funny that I dont get the Configure option under the 3 dots next to both a single and multiple user picker.
Please advise why this is?
Under edit details, we do see "Search Template" but that only has options None or User Picker & Group Picker.
Hi @Angélica Luz ,
just a question - it seems that one could use filtering for single user picker, but not for multiple user pickers which finally means I can't apply that approach here then. I've got now the problem that customers (from a service desk project) appears in that multi user picker of another project where - for obvious reasons - customer don't have access to. Any chance to solve that?
Hi @Oliver Zmorek,
Thank you for reaching out to Community!
Testing on my local site, I can see that customers will show as a suggestion on User Picker fields on any project, even those that are not Jira Service Management.
Currently, there is no option to prevent that.
Based on your question, I created a feature request suggesting this improvement:
