I am in an organization where users are synchronized with the AD. All employees can log into JIRA an when they do they are added to the group jira-users and will count towards the license.
We are now looking into using JIRA ServiceDesk and a lot of employees do not need real JIRA access they will be fine with only using the Customer Portal. BUT I cannot find any documentation on how I can resolve this.
I want users that should be customers to go to the portal, log in using their regular login details (AD) and then be a customer to our servicedesk. Then I want users that should use JIRA to be able to do as they do now, log in and then be a jira-user.
Does anyone know? Very thankful for help here.
Hi Susanne, just my two cents on this to add to the answers above:
JIRA Service Desk does not provide integration with AD for customer accounts. We already have a feature request regarding this in JSD-1015. You can vote for this feature and add yourself as a watcher to be aware of new developments in this case.
you should solve this with another Group.
Take everyone the login-permission (jira-user) who doesn't need it and put everyone in a group (f.e. service-desk customer) and set these in the role customer in the service desk project.
Then they keep their logins but can just access on the customer portal not the "support backend".
Hope this could help.
You can remove the users who shouldn't have access to JIRA.
Then you can access the project on Service Desk that they should have access, click on People > Customer > Invite customers. The invited users will receive an email to set password for Service Desk.
Hope this resolves your issue.
Thanks and regards,
