Licences for JIRA support portal

Hi, We are trialling Jira Service Desk and wonder, do we have to have a licence for all of our customer portal users?

I understand the need to have a licence for every user using the system, but for those using the portal only, we need some flexability as we could have hundreds who would use it only once or twice a year.

Currently, yes, you do.

Atlassian know that it doesn't work for smaller organisations and are promising some more options, possibly along the lines of "agent based licences", but I don't know what they are, or just what "soon" meant. The last time I spoke to a rep about it was February, and it was supposed to be "soon", but I've not heard more. (Mind you, I haven't gone and bothered him either!)

Please feel free to share your thoughts with us through:

Thanks for your feedback. I am speaking to the sales rep. This may lose them a sale!

Shame really. I hope they can do something.
