JSD License for Jira-Administrators?

Andre Lehmann Community Leader Aug 18, 2015

Hi there,

we are evaluation JSD in our company.

Am I correct that a JIRA-Systemadministrator also needs to be a JSD-Agent to "help" the people with their configuration?

I will never work as an agent in any ServiceDesk on our Jira-Plattform but i still need a license?

We are 4 JIRA-Admins. And everybody should be able to substitute everbody. With that, there are 4 JSD-Licenses burned which are quite useless...

Is there any info/plan to change the JSD-Behaviour for JIRA-Admins?

Hello Andre,

you're right. I tried it with our service desk. As soon as I revoked group "service-desk-agent" from my user (jira-admin) I couldn't access the service desk anymore.
You could file an issue in Atlassians JIRA.

As jira-admins, you needn't be member of group service-desk-agents all the time. If there's an incident and someone needs help with their service desk, you can assign the necessary group to your user, solve the problem and revoke the membership. This burns only one license slot.

Cheers,
Kirstin
