Use JIRA OnDemand as a support system


Let's assume a customer finds an issue, and sends a message to our support email. Then someone in our team creates an issue on JIRA OnDemand for that customer. When the issue is created, the customer receives an email notification about this. Then the team works on this issue and fixes it, and closes this issue on JIRA OnDemand. Then the customer again receives another email notification saying that this issue has been closed.

Can anyone tell me how to use JIRA OnDemand as a support system to implement the above scenario? Any idea /suggestion is appreciated!

Hi Jiechao,

I think your best bet for at least the first part of your question would be configuring JIRA to automatically create tickets when an email is sent to its handler. You can find that full documentation here:

The stumbling block I see here is that JIRA will not send out email notifications to non users. The suggested workaround for this would be to include a workflow step that reminds your JIRA users to send out an email to customers upon certain steps in the workflow.

Hope this helps
