Service Desk is available on your instance, however the menu "Service Desk" that used to be on the top is now deprecated. When you open a project that has Service Desk enabled, you'll see on the left menu some of the options you used to have on the old view (like Customers, Queues, Customer Portal), as well as when you open the project's administration you'll find the settings (SLAs, Request Types, Request Security...).
When you go to Projects (on the top menu) > Service Desk, all projects that has Service Desk enabled are shown.
You can take a look on this video so you can have a quick overview.
Thanks and regards,
This makes ZERO sense in terms of ease of use for employees within our organization. Instead of having a dropdown and one click to the portal to enter in a request, they now have to navigate to a project (that most don't have permissions to view and only create) and then try and create a ticket from there. Being able to keep the service desk shortcut in the top nav bar should have been an option when considering this breakout of products.
I agree with this comment, service desk is for the users to create a ticket easily, now we have to train the user, and many feel uncomfortable. And the downside of this is, why do i need to buy again service desk, i can create a project with service desk workflows\screens in Jira software and ask the users to use that.
Agreed. this functionality needs to return. I've got 200 employees screaming at me that service desk is missing. now they have to go looking for it. Very poor decision. I have a feeling were looking for another solution. Upgrades are supposed to add features/functionality, not hide or remove them.
The workaround I implemented was to put a flash announcement at the top of JIRA for logged in users that instructs users of the change and links directly to the portal. I also configured the list of links in the upper left-hand corner "hamburger" dropdown to include a direct link to the portal. Hope this helps.
I'm still baffled that Atlassian thinks this is an acceptable feature deprecation. Aren't they supposed to support system integration to improve the user experience?
The depreciation of Service Desk from the header is a very short sighted decision from Atlassian.
Updates are meant to improve user experience, not add obstacles and complicate processes that have been established and working fine since the beginning.
Why is it that every software company that has a great well established application, tries to improve it by taking out the features that made it great in the first place? This is something I never understand.
