Our service desk currently has Jira Work Management but we wanted to know when creating issues if a ticket number could be generated? If not, is there an add on app that we can use for actual ticketing within Work Management or would we have to get Service Management as well?
Hey @Pamela Rice and welcome to the community!
My suggestion would indeed to be look towards Jira Service Management. I fear that otherwise you'll start looking at more and more apps to get the features that you would need to run a succesfull servicedesk.
I'm a strong believer in using the tool that was created for it and not try and make the tool you have fit your needs.
Both JWM and JSM are excellent tools but were created for different purposes.
Hi @Sara Palmitessa ,
You'll most likely use an automation to push the tickets from JSM to JWM. and create a linked issue.
What your criteria would be to push them is up to you of course.
If you don't want to automate things, you'll have to create linked issue manually.
Hi @Dirk Ronsmans - I was trying to figure out how to automate them, but I couldn't figure that part out either. In Request types, I created my own (see image)
Then when I went to Automate, I could not find a way to have the new issue be created if one of these request types was chosen. Is it there and I am missing it?
Also, do I duplicate the issue and put the duplication in my Digital Marketing Project (where JWM project is) - ideally, I do not want to duplicate it, because I do not need for it to live in JSM - only JWM. Is that possible? I have already setup JWM exactly the way I want it - I have used it in the past. I just didn't know how to do the JSM and went about that second so i am not sure if I created it in the wrong order. A lot of my screens are copied from my JWM instance and renamed so most things that carry over will already have a 1:1.
I have created a form in JSM that I figured out how to attach to each of my tasks. How will that be carried over into JWM?
Sorry - I have so many questions!!
It depends on the complexity of the projects/help desk you want to setup. JWM can work well for very focused tasks with little need to customize. Otherwise JSM would be the route to go.
Pamela kind accept the answer which suits your needs, in order to help other people in this community to find the right answers. :)
IMO, Jira Service Management has features that are better suited for a Help Desk. You don't consume licenses to create tickets through a self-service portal. Tickets are organized in queues where you can view whether the tickets are meeting SLAs.
As far as a specific ticket number, most people use the Jira issue number.
Hope this helps.
