We have created a customer user account (firstname.lastname@example.org) to send in support requests to jira service desk to auto create a case. Customer has changed their email address to email@example.com. System now is not auto creating cases as the email addresses do not match. Is there a way for us to change the email address of the registered customer user? Or should the customer change the email address by themselves?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
You can edit a customers email address of a service desk customer if you are an administrator on the JIRA system by going to Administration > User management. You can search for the customer. When you find them under actions there will be an "edit" link. You can click this to change the email address. You will most likely want to update the username as well since they will most likely be one and the same. You might also want to let the user know you are doing this so they can login to the Service Desk Portal. Here is the KB article about editing users. The user can also update their profile in the portal and change their email address.
This is impacting me today, and I'm sure this was an existing feature that is now missing (been removed). I am certain that in the past (service desk / portal) customers could update their email address through the JIRA Customer Portal, and Admins even had the ability to update the email address through Administrator Settings > Users > Service Desk Users > ...
Instead of delivering a good customer experience, I've had to ask one of our customers to compromise today and keep the existing email address alive until all their active tickets have all been resolved. Not ideal.
I need an answer to this as well please. I can now only change a 'Portal Only' customer's name - I have users who are moving department and I want to be able to move their tickets with them to their new email address - I don't want to have to create new accounts for each email address they have/have had.
Some of them really aren't tech savvy, so if they've got to convert to an Atlassian account just to be able to change their email address, I may never get them back...
Unfortunately, it appears as a "suggestion" which probably means it's got next to zero chances of getting fixed in our lifetimes. This is clearly a regression of some most basic functionality that needs to be addressed by Atlassian ASAP!
It has been two years since this post was last active, and I wanted to revive the discussion because I have a question regarding editing JSM (Jira Service Management) customer emails on cloud instances.
My question specifically relates to two aspects:
Any help or guidance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
