Restrictions on external access in JIRA Service Desk

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Managing access to your service desk

We need to restrict certain service desk portals so that only specific external users will be ale to submit issues as well as seeing the issues posted. That is, if you are a non authorized external user, there is nothing you can see or do in the portal. Can Service Desk work this way.

Can external users see other users issues within the same service desk project (i.e. a key user who overviews general support for this external customer who is using the portal)

Hi Luis - you should be able to do this by setting the Service Desk Customer - Portal Access. This allows you to control who has access to view and create issues. Instructions on this can be found - here.

Hope this helps.
