Assigning to Developer


Does the developer have to be a JIRA Service Desk Agent in order to be assigned a task to work on? Our license only allows for 3 JIRA Service Desk Agents but we have more developers than that. Ideally we would like the service desk agent to be able to assign the issues to the developers.

bump. Please, can anyone assist. 

Sadly no.... 

You might want to see for more information. 

In my case, we were trying to work around this by having separate projects for the Service Desk and Development.   Then when a service desk request became a development issue, it would be 'moved' to the development project. 

Unfortunately, the notification scheme doesn't work well for this.  If you move an issue from an SD project to a normal project , there appears to be no notification to the customer and the issue just disappears from the customer's portal.  Not ideal. 







JIRA Service Desk has a new Price model  If you want assign issues to developer role, this people must agent service desk. 

Jeff White solution is fine but when you move the issue to the JIRA Project you lost the id and the user customer portal can not show the issue status.
