Anonymous Access to Service Desk

I have a project and I'd like to implement a service desk within the intranet of my organization, so that every employee (registered or not) can create issues. Service Desk and Customer Portal, respectively, in general work like a charm. I set the respective project to the permission scheme "Customer Portal". There, I enabled the group "anyone" to a) browse the project and b) create issues.

I'm now able to access the project anonymously in JIRA. However, the customer portal automatically redirects me to a login page whenever I try to access the project anonymously :-(

Any ideas?

Thank you, Boris. Obviously, it is not intended to use Service Desk / Customer Portal to anonymously access an otherwise closed project.

However, my project is already exposed to the public in JIRA. To me, it doesn't make sense that the Customer Portal is more restricted than JIRA itself!?

I think that has something to do with the license, as Service Desk usually means that you'll have a lot of customers logging requests there, so if there is anonymous access you'll be able to get away with a lot "cheaper" license :).

If you are happy to provide a non-interactive interface, you can use email to create issues through JEMH, which supports both registered users or not (howto).
