We have a large customer list and I need to be able to do multi selection there. So far we made due with the JIRA multi select list but the list is now over 200 customers and doing multi selection is a really very hard and tedious. Does anyone know of a better solution (with plugin or otherwise)? Basically when a bug is entered, the reported chooses the impacted customer from this list. He has to look in the list of over 200 to see who is impacted and select those.
Would it be viable that you sort your customers into groups and use a group picker, instead of a customer picker? The number of your customers will (hopefully) grow even more and sooner or later you'll have to make it easier for your reporter to quickly select a large group of customers.
Or ... following Mladen answers, you can represent your customer by using Users. They don't need to belong to jira-users or have any permissions granted.
Define a set of User Picker customfields, or even better, use this plugin to restrict the users to a role while allowing multi selection
Yes, create your customers as users, and assign them a new project role "Customers".
The plugin I linked to adds the ability to create a new Custom field for selecting users and allowing multi-selection, and restricting the "selectable" users to a project role (Customers).
This is a valid question. What's the best practice suggested by Atlassian to manage large list of customers in JIRA so we can associate them with Bugs or production incidents. We have been using text boxes to capture, but you can imagine that it has the downside of not being able to do good reporting. Workarounds like using user field is not acceptable. With such an impressive list of customers, Atlassian must be having guidelines on this topic ... waiting to hear that.
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
