I have an install of Jira software and use this to log bugs.
Customers of the product have now started to ask for support and I would like to setup Service Desk for this task.
What steps would I take to 'connect' Service Desk to Software and the existing project sitting inside Software? Or will I need a separate project inside Service Desk?
Server version 7.5
You need to setup a separate JIRA Service Desk project where customers can raise support tickets. These are handled by Service Desk Agents that count towards your license.
When a ticket if confirmed as a bug, you can collaborate with a Developer (JIRA Software User) on the ticket internally, and they can create a Bug in their JIRA project and link it to the Service Desk ticket. The customer is notified that the bug will be addressed in an upcoming release and the support ticket is closed/resolved.
Refer to the blog post at https://www.atlassian.com/blog/archives/collaborate-developers-using-jira-service-desk
Hope that helps.
Just an opinion here FWIW. I prefer to leave the original customer JSD issue open until the bug is resolved and associated release is available. In this way the customer is notified when they are able to test and accept/decline the resolution. You can use JSD automation to to resolve the JSD issue when the JSW issue is resolved.
