@Syed Mustafa, they will have to be licensed as a software user or a core user at the very least. Then, they can be added to the project role Service Desk Team. 

If you do that, they will be able to collaborate with agents. They can perform the actions outlined here such as viewing comments, leaving internal comments, add attachments, ect.

If they need to be assigned to a ticket, edit the ticket, or other itmes like that, they'd need to be licensed as a Service Desk agent.

Hello Kian, thanks for your answer.

If I subscribe to IT Service Management, do I need to separately buy licenses for JIRA software or JIRA core?

Also, if I am currently on free version with 3 agents, and 10 users, can I still try collaborator feature?

Thank you

You can get software for free as well!

You can try the collabotator feature on the free version!
