As the subject tells we would like to merge both OTRS and JIRA. Today we use OTRS for Troubletickets from customers, and JIRA for Softwaredevelopment. We would like to enable our customers to create issues in JIRA via Mail.
We set the mail handler to create new users automatically. This is working so far, Tickets and Users were created, but the user received no answer
1) Those users count as JIRA-Users. How do I create such Users having no Jira-Rights (= not counting for user licenses)
2) The newly created user should receive mail notifications on Creating a ticket, when tickets receive comments, or when a ticket is closed. Is this possible with JIRA itself? Do I need a plugin? Do I have to develop such a function by myself?
I found a few other Q&A, but nothing really answering the questions, any help is appreciated
1) New users must not be added to the "can log in" groups. Then they won't count towards your licence. (The group is usually "jira-users", but check your admin -> global permissions before assuming that)
2) Yes, look up "notification schemes", where you'll find you can set up targets for events. For example "issue commented" - email "reporter", and "issue closed" - email "reporter" and "current assignee"
Thank you, nice! I can handle the answer #2. But where in Jira do I set the standard groups users are added to? Much more: how to avoid users are added automatically to 'jira-users'. I created a group called non-jira-users, and would like to have new users added to that group by default.
Yes, this is a bit of a sticky one. Admin -> Global permissions is where you need to look for the "standard" groups, because...
All new users are automatically added into any group you put in the "can log in" setting.
There's no way around that without a bit of coding. Things like the Jira Enhanced Email Handler (JEMH) can bypass the automatic add (and be a lot more powerful than the built-in stuff), and you can write stuff/scripts which will automatically remove users and so-on. But I don't know of a way to prevent this in off-the-shelf Jira.
