Not possible to add request type group.

According to documentation( it's possible to add request type groups. This is not possible in our JIRA Service Desk Cloud setup. Is this a bug?

the feature is that and works. See images below. In my instance displayed I current have 3 groups: Fortress...., General, Access. Add a group by clicking the "Add group"

Thanks, Jack, but unfortunately the "Request types" overview with the "Add group" is not present in the project:

I do have all the admin rights required.

How do I proceed do have this fixed?

Odd, seems to be a permissions thing. You should have access if you are System or Project Admin. So I assume you can do other sysadmin functions, e.g. if you go to Email requests you can modify the email, etc. If that is the case then I suggest contacting Atlassian Support to open a ticket.


Hi Chris,

Any update on this? You should be seeing the Request Type grouping.



I latest version I can't see any ADD BUTTON in order to ADD group.

Was deleted ??

Any HELP, please...
