Here's a way I found (we are using Jira Service Desk Cloud):
Put your mouse on the customer's description in the Customers view of JIRA Service Desk.
Wait for the popup to appear, go to the More menu on the right and select Administer User.
The URL that you're redirect to is : https://xxx.atlassian.net/admin/users/view?username=(email)
There you'll be able to delete the user.
Hi @Bruno Vieira ,
To remove the customers from your project, you can navigate to Project Settings > People. You will find the customers listed in the Service Desk Customer role. There's an (x) button to remove them.
To remove from your site entirely, you can navigate to the User Management as mentioned above
Look for Jira Service Desk in the left menu and the users will appear in that list.
Hi @Sergei Gridnevskii ,
Is your project restricted to customers added to the project or does it allow anyone?
If it allows anyone, it is expected to display "everyone who is not an agent" on your site.
If it is restricted to customers added to the project, do those customers belong to an organization and is that organization added to the project? If so, they are gaining access to the project via the organization and not individually.
It is restricted to customers and customers are licensed Jira Software users. They are not part of any organization.
I found a solution two pages below that I need to edit permission scheme for the project and remove several groups from Create permission. I will try to do that now.
This did not help to remove jira users from customers, but at least these users are not able to create new service desk requests using portal.
Still one has to fill the form and click Submit before he gets a message that he cannot create. I would prefer that the message is showed instead of the form as long as customer with no permission to create tries to do that on portal.
Also I cannot remove Browse permission because users may be involved in working on issues.
I always told my managers that with Jira you should not restrict users but rather instruct them, anyway everything is logged. But bosses prefer to restrict rather than watch over.
Its not work for me too. Iam usins Jira +SD +confluence in cloud. I cant delete customers tahat ive beeen created for tests.
I cant undestand Why so complicated to admin Jira sofwtrares. It conflitcs with the basic of Scrum that is simplicity.
change your name from Atlassian to Assassian. You asssasins the basic of fucionality.
After a couple of experiments I think I got the answer. If your customer has a jira license and you cannot delete him - this means that he has one of permissions in Permissions scheme for this project. It may be browse project or create issues - no matter what, if he can do something with service desk ticket - he will be in the list of customers and you will not be able to remove him directly from customer's page. Even if he is not mentioned in this scheme but a group he is in is mentioned.
However if you switch to roles for this project and add specific people to roles and then remove all permissions for individual users and groups and leave only roles - this person will be deleted from customers page.
Generally three roles are required: Service Desk Team (for agents and other Jira users), customers and admins. All others are optional.
I switched to role based permissions for my service desk project and now my customers page is as good as it is - only guys I added there are present.
I'm suspecting that those users belong to organizations. Since they were added to the project via being added to the organization, you can only remove them from the project by removing them from an organization. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/setting-up-service-desk-users-732528877.html?_ga=2.261384207.368583193.1547425851-413787406.1501390305#Settingupservicedeskusers-Removecustomersfromanorganization
If a customer has been granted a "Single User" permission in one of your project permissions (schemes) they cannot be removed from the "Customers" list (for example, Permission = "Browse Projects -->Single User--> <user name>", you must remove this permission to enable their removal from within the service desk project view; "Customers". I had this issue and followed Sergei's guidance from November 26, 2019. Fixed my problem.
@Elisa Diel [Atlassian] Hi Elisa. Sorry to interrupt you again with the same request but i didn't quite understand your response. I have setup some users in the test phase, which has now finished and i want to take the Portal "live" now. Beforehand i have deleted all support requests that i made during the test. So there are no requests inside my SreviceDesk portal.
I have selected the option that only users which are setup by JIRA Admins (me) may login and raise requests. I would like to "clean up" the current costumer list. How can i delete them?
Is the user added to an organization or by themselves into the project? If they are added into an organization, remove them from the organization. If they are added directly, remove them from the People section of the project. See [https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/setting-up-service-desk-users-732528877.html#Settingupservicedeskusers-Removecustomersfromaproject|https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/setting-up-service-desk-users-732528877.html#Settingupservicedeskusers-Removecustomersfromaproject]
This can be a little tricky. You won't be able to delete a customer if s/he has already created content on JIRA Service Desk. Though, if this user is there and has never used JSD, you will be able to delete her/him via Cog Icon > User Management. :smile:
Please let us know if this helps you.
Seems like we're still running into this hiccup. Is it really the case that I cannot remove the customer "Example Customer" that Atlassian creates and sends tickets for? I cannot even edit them to "zzzzzExample" to move them out of sight? Is it the "accepted answer" to move Example Customer to "zzzzzFakeOrg" organization to hide them?
In the People section of your project, search the user you want to remove from the project (not from Jira entirely) and remove them. This removes them from the project only. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/setting-up-service-desk-users-732528877.html#Settingupservicedeskusers-Removecustomersfromaproject
on the page of the screenshot, go to Settings (last option on the left menu) > People. You can remove the users there.
The step-by-step is outlined at https://confluence.atlassian.com/servicedeskcloud/setting-up-service-desk-users-732528877.html?_ga=2.22003003.1277652459.1529305058-413787406.1501390305#Settingupservicedeskusers-Removecustomersfromaproject as mentioned in my previous reply.
the People section, there is a search box and role dropdown. Can I know if you have filtered the user you wanted to remove?
The People section shows all users for the project including customer unless they belong to an organization and was added to the project from organization. If that's the case, they would need to be removed from the organization in the Customer list.
Thank you for the instructions on removing a customer. I thought it was enough, but thiscustomer has called me 3x today to completely remove his Service Desk accessibility. I was able to remove from "People" but his email is still showing under "Customers". I also deleted his ticket.
Does he still technically have an account? He said he did not create a password.
Thank you in advance.
If your JSD project allows everyone with an account access, it will list the user as a customer as the user exists in Jira. You can completely remove the user from User Management to remove the user entirely.
See permission overview at Set up customer permissions
I found a way to remove the Customers from the JIRA Service Desk customers list.
Problem was that I have never added them in first place and was wondering what's going on and how these are displayed there.
Solution is...Permission scheme for the project itself. Inside the permission scheme, I have added a specific group, which holds 40-50 people, so these 40-50 people were added automatically in Customers menu in JIRA Service Desk project.
I have removed this group from the permission scheme and the Customers menu is now empty. If you want to add customers, you can do it via the People menu in the project settings. Just add people or groups there and they will be also visible in Customers menu.
Hey @Sergei Gridnevskii , check the following:
1. Administration -> User Management -> JIRA Service Desk. This is the menu for Portal only access customers. You can remove the customer from there if the customer is not having jira user account but still has access to the service desk portal.
2. Project -> Settings -> People. Remove the user accounts that you don't need from there if listed.
3. Project -> Settings -> Permission schemes. Take a look at the groups or users that are listed under the Create issue permission.
Hope this helps.
1. It works if customer needs to have access only to one Service Desk project, but we have a dozen.
2. No one is in People for this project.
3. I removed Create issue permission for most Customers, but they are still listed on Customers page of the project and can view Request creation form (however when they click Create a message is shown saying you cannot create)
I did find that if I had a user assigned to the project role of Service Desk Team, and this user was not a licensed Service Desk agent, their name appeared on the Customers page. Same thing was true if I had someone as an Administrator who was not a licensed agent.
Removing an unlicensed agent from the role of Admin or SD Tesam also removed them form the Customers list.
Likewise, removing someone who is an agent and is in the Service Desk Team project roll from the jira-servicedesk group in the overall JIRA user management, would make them appear in the Customers list.
I know a lot of this thread speaks to variations of removing customers from service desk, but I thought this info might be useful.
Note that this is for JIRA server, not sure if cloud works the same way.
Finally found a fix for this!
Portal only customers are now gone!
Doesn't work for me either. After selecting 'Customers my team adds to the project' the customers that I want to delete simply disappear from the list. i.e. There are no delete options available as the customers have now disappeared.
When I change it back to 'Anyone can raise a request in this service desk' the customers are back and I still can't delete them.
This issue goes back to 2015???
I was able to resolve this by doing both of the following
1. Go to project settings > Customer Permissions
2. Change the portal access setting so that the following is selected:
'Customers my team adds to the project'
1. Project Settings > Permissions
2. Remove Jira Software Product Access from the Browse Issues Permission
