Ideally it should be created using the customer portal, but if it isn't, you can make an issue visible to your customer by doing the following:
I don't believe doing any of these will send the customer a notification, so you may want to add a comment to the issue to make them aware of it. (Then they can reply to that email to add further comments without having to use the portal.)
When you create an issue "manually", I am assuming that you are using the big blue "Create" button at the top of your screen. Creating in this fashion does not add a "Request Type", so the notifications will use your JIRA core notification scheme, and not the "Service Desk" scheme that it sounds like you are expecting. If you use this guide, you can create an automation rule to apply a request type automatically whenever you manually create an issue:
You can do this either with a post function on create, or using the automator plugin. You will need to know the raw values for each of your request types from the database.
JSD-1809 - Automatically set Customer Request Type when issue is created via JIRA OPEN
This ticket has some info and instructions using the plugin, however the concepts are the same as a post function in workflow. Feel free to reply if you have any more questions, we used that information to correct this in our environment.
