Hello @Madhusudanan Backiaraj,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

For an internal user to be able to access the ticket and also to receive a notification, the option that best fits in this scenario is to add them as watchers:

If it's a Service Desk project and it's necessary to share the ticket with other customers, the option is to add them as Request Participants:

I didn't find any specific API to share a ticket, both that I found will add the user or customer to a ticket and they will receive notifications.


Hello ,


You can find a Jira SHARE Issue Rest API  1.0:

Request : /rest/share/1.0/issue/{your issue ID}

Request payload : {"usernames":[],"emails":[],"message":""}

Method : POST


With :

usernames : a list of users

email : list of mails

message : the message to send


Good luck...
