We've recently made the shift to JIRA from Manage Engine's Service Desk for our entire IT department which consists of 3 sub departments:
We've had a few teething issues getting this setup to work efficiently within our operations and thought i'd seek some advice to see if any one has got any recommendations for us.
Currently these are the modules we have installed and purchased:
Now the way we've tried to configure this is as follows.
JIRA SERVICE DESK
The service desk has been configured with 5 licenses. This is purely for the SD techs which is where all jobs enter the department. The web portal has also been configured so that our user base have two options for job logging, email to a central address and also through the portal. This section works perfectly.
The issues we're facing is that development and infrastructure currently work out of separate projects for their daily tasks. For arguments sake lets call these projects:
Currently the Service Desk will work on incoming issues and converse with the customers with the comments function within any issue. Once the SD have established that either Infrastructure or Development is required, the issue is moved to their business as usual project.
There are several issues with this however as it doesn't appear that this was how it was intended to be used.
Commenting out of the dev and infrastructure queue's to customers is not possible (hence the notification assistant) due to all our user base not being "JIRA Users".
The notifications work ok with this plugin however, the general business staff don't have access to either of these 2 projects, hence cannot view the comments or updates from within the notifications.
Some questions i have:
I'm sure i'll come up with more questions but any help on the above would be appreciated.
