How to view (read-only) workflow in Customer Portal page


I am new in Jira and really love it, I just install ServiceDesk 3.5 and everything seam good until one problem.

I can NOT view workflow in Customer Portal page, just only see the status, such as Waiting for Customer, ...

I think that it should be had a link "view workflow" next to the status as attach file Customer_Page.png.

Note: I open full permission for everyone to view workflow and I can see this link in Agent page as attach file Agen_Page.png

Do anyone know how to view (read-only) workflow in Customer Portal page?

To my knowledge, "View Read-Only" work is a permission which is available only in JIRA not in Customer Portal. Means, only in the Issue View. 

You can adjust the permission scheme on JIRA side as mentioned in this document. 

Thanks, Vishnu, 

Vishnu is right, customers don't get to see the workflow (because it's not necessarily the one they will seem to follow, and frankly, they don't need to know what the process is if you've got it set up right)

You can give them the option to perform transitions on their requests though.  See

Thanks Vishnu and Nic, I got it

Thank you Nick for adding your comments.
