We use JIRA Service Desk as well as JIRA software. We have created user only accounts for our customers to raise tickets.
We can successfully @mention agents but not other JIRA users who are not part of the jira-servicedesk-users group.
I need clarity on a number of things...
Does membership of "jira-servicedesk-users" make someone a Service Desk agent and therefore incur a license fee for that user.
Related to this, how do I expose specific issues to customers who may not have been the issue raiser. My plan was to @mention them, but they are not showing up.
Hi @James Boswell,
I'll try answer your queries as accurately as I can:
So I think the best way forward for you would be to add the developers in JIRA Software as request participants, they'll get an email and be able to take action if required. At present you can't add a custom message to this request, but they will receive an email alerting them to the issue. Going forward, if you do want to be able to @ mention a JIRA user, you need to grant them the browse project permission on the project. You could do this in a number of ways, either add the users individually, or add the relevant groups. This does mean these users will be able to see all issues in the project.
Let me know if you have any more queries.
Thanks @Warren Thompson. Helpful as always.
I have tested adding a customer as a participant, and the email was received as you said. I can live with the default message, but it seems added participants can only see the issue title, no description.
Is that the intended behaviour? It seems pretty poor if so
It's a popular request to be able to modify all the content of outgoing Service Desk emails @James Boswell, and again we have an open issue for it here, and it's something we're really looking into.
It's great to get feedback on our products from customers like yourself, and though we can't always prioritise it straight away, it definitely affects our roadmap and helps us develop and deliver what our customers want and need. Thanks for the feedback, please keep it coming!
