I am interested in getting JIRA for my team, and we would like to have our clients be able to login and view recent activity and issue status'. They do not need to be able to create issues or comment or anything like that. We just need them to be able to view their project. Is this possible without creating them a user and using up one of our licenses?
Anyone who can log in counts against your user license so the only way with native JIRA for users to view tickets without them counting against your license would be to make the relevant JIRA projects "public" so they didn't have to log in. Possibly not what you'd want to do though as that would mean client A would be able to see client B's tickets and vice versa because there would be no way of restricting who could see what.
JIRA Service Desk has a free, unlimited client/customer model, so that might be worth looking at? You pay for "agents", who are your internal people that are managing tickets, but customers/clients can create, view and comment on tickets for free. JIRA Service Desk clients/customers are still logging in so you can set relevant permissions so they only see their own tickets.
Does that help?
Hi Andrew, I too have the same requirement. Our software development team has 10 employees and we need nearly 50 guest access for our clients to create tickets & view the status. I am planning to buy the combination of Jira Service Desk & Jira Software so that our customers can create a ticket in Jira Service Desk and our employees can work on Jira Software to fix the issues. Is there any automated flow to clone the tickets in Jira Software that are already created in Jira Service Desk? I don't want to create and manage tickets/issues in both the apps.
