How to hide other service desks

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Configuring the customer portal

We have many customers, each with their own help desk project. In the help center I don't want them to see other help desks than their own and our general ones (eg. Support Help Desk) under "Popular".

Hi, Mikkel.

When you say 'each with their own help desk project', do you mean they have their own account to access the project or did you create a Service Desk project for each of them?

If the former, the Service Desk customers shouldn't be able to access the requests created by other customers, unless they have access to JIRA or are added as participants.

If the latter, this is a different approach than Service Desk was created for, but you can prevent customers to access other projects. In the project administration page there's a 'Request Security' option. There you can make that project only accessible to customers in a list. Then add to the list the customers that should access it.

Let me know if I was able to answer your question.

Kind regards,

Hi Jamie,

I meant that I created a Service Desk project for each of them.

If this is not the approach, how do we go about managing multiple customers (as in clients or company accounts – eg. “Coca Cola”, “LEGO”, “United Airlines”), each with a number of users?

Is there a better way to set things up so we can maintain an overview of issues for each individual company account?

The overall structure is something like this:

  • Coca Cola
    • Users:
      • John
      • Frank
      • Carrie
    • Issues:
      • Issue 1
      • Issue 2
      • Issue 3
  • LEGO
    • Users:
      • Kim
      • Charles
    • Issues:
      • Issue 1
      • Issue 2
      • Issue 3
  • United Airlines
    • Users:
      • Peter
      • Johanna
    • Issues:
      • Issue 1
      • Issue 2
      • Issue 3

Hello Mikkel,

You did well creating different Service Desk projects according to your customers organization. In order to your Coca Cola users don't see the Lego project and don't raise issues in different projects, you can restrict your project as described in the following documentation:
