How do you manage multiple service desk portals? (solved) Edited

We have several projects that use the next-gen service desk.  And a few customers that work on several of these projects. 

The NextGen Service Desk portals have a URL like:

Based on the URL it's impossible to see to which project it relates.  For example: it would be a lot clearer if this would at least use the project key like:

But this is not possible.  So, now they have to remember: nr 13 is for this project A, number 5 is for project B, number 21 is for project X.   This is not user-friendly at all and often issues are created in the wrong portal. 


How do other people manage this? 


Right now, the only option I see it to publish a HTML list somewhere that lists a link to all our JIRA portals with the related project name.  But this feels so redundant and the extra step is annoying for the users.

Perhaps this is something different with next gen but I don't think so.

If you go to:

you should just see all the portals they have access too with the proper portal/project name.

for future reference, this is called the Help Center and it lists all the portals you have browse project permissions for :)

@lies I agree with you, it would make much more sense to replace the customer portal ID by the project key (friendly URL).

Well yes and no, you can always change the KEY afterwards but the id stays the same.

So from the point of view where everything continues to work it makes sense to use an id.
