Upgraded from Service Desk 1.x to 2.x - No enhanced people tab, agent management screen

Many would probably love this, but wary of other issues this might be indicative of.

We upgraded from 6.2 to 6.4.11 over the weekend. Due to an issue connecting to AD we're using the JRE from 6.4.9.

Prior to the upgrade I disabled all plugins marked incompatible, then after the upgrade I updated and then enabled them one by one.  On a prior test environment when we were considering moving to 6.4.9 I got a migration alert for each project to adjust the permissions to allow for collaborators, correct administrator permissions, etc and we have none of that.  We DO have the automation migration alert and obvious changes like 'On behalf of' and I can confirm we're on 2.5.4. I added our general population to the agents global user permission and that didn't really clear anything up. Original permissions appear intact as far as the roles who can work tickets, permission helper clearly states that Service Desk isn't overriding permissions. Manually going to the agent management screen I've seen in documentation and in a 6.4.9 environment results in an error.

Has anyone seen this kind of thing before?  I expect we'll need to open an official support request but figure it didn't hurt to ask.  Don't think it's licensing because we're running an evaluation license.  I've uninstalled/reinstalled on a sandbox environment with no success.

Hi Stephen!

From the description you put here, I believe you don't have a Service Desk version 2 license for Service Desk. To have the new features you are looking for, you need to update your old license to a version 2 one.

If you have doubts about your licenses, I would recommend you to reach for our Customer Advocate team, in the link below:




Yeah, via my Support ticket I believe we've determined the same there overnight. Will get it resolved though them, thanks!
