Does Checklist for JIRA work with Jira ServiceDesk?

Does 'Checklist for JIRA' add-on work with Jira ServiceDesk? Or only with JIRA Software?

Sort of.  It works with JIRA.  Service Desk and Software are JIRA applications that run within the JIRA framework, so the checklists are available to them.  But how they do it might be a bit complicated.  What are you looking to do with the fields?

Hi Nic,

What we like to do is when we have a new employee joining the company that we create a new issue and we have to tick off the whole checklist, like account created; picture taken; access to applications granted etc. Is that easy to accomplish?


Add the checklist to the issues in the project behind the Service Desk for your internal teams to use

The customer doesn't need to see the individual items, so you don't need to get the checklist on the front end of service desk.

I'm also looking for a checklist solution for exactly the same type of workflow - on boarding new hires (or off-boarding people who leave). It would be great to be able to define a checklist template and associate it with the specific onboarding/offboarding issue type. 

Making sure agents address all the necessary tasks for on boarding someone is the first priority. If the end user (the new hire) could also follow along, or got notifications, as items are checked off, they would know where they stand within the process. That's the dream sheet...

As we white boarded the workflow, it also became clear that there are several different "tiers" of employees, some of which have more on boarding tasks and others which have fewer. The workflow is not the same for all tiers. Therefore, the workflow also needs to include decision points which alter the task list, depending on the answer. I suppose the other solution is to create an issue type for each tier of employee. 

I would appreciate input from any others looking to accomplish similar goals using Service Desk.
