Customer User Administration | Invited Status and Activity Date

paul_price April 24, 2024


We have a bed of ~600 customer users and in an attempt to administer dormant accounts we performed an audit suspending accounts with no activity (Activity Date) within 60-days and with a Status of "Invited" within

The presumption was that these are accounts that have received the invitation but have not interacted with the platform since that last Activity Date.

We received reports from some of the customer accounts we suspended, that the activity date and the Status reflected in do not reflect the status of their accounts. They are interacting with the portal to submit tickets under their account logins. Reading on the forums it would appear this should have flipped the accounts off of Invited status.

We've re-granted the access to move of the impacted users, however we now have a gap in platform administration. We still have a mass of customer accounts that appear to be inactive based on Status and Activity Date.

What is Activity Date measuring, what kicks an update to the portal?

How do you (as JIRA Admins) accurately isolate customer user accounts with truly dormant activity?

Hi Paul,

My experience is that neither invited status nor last activity works very well for JSM customers unfortunately.

If a portal only customer only verifies their email and responds to tickets via email they stay invited and never active indefinitely - I would not be surprised if its the same for users that interact with the portal only.

I would also be interested to hear if anyone has any solution that actually works - I can only think of solutions that seem way to complex - ie automation to add user attribute and then script to check user attribute.
