How to Auto set Reporter's Manager as Approver in Jira Service Desk

Aashutosh Kumar August 25, 2020


I am trying to set Reporter's Manager as Approver for Issue Types Service Request with Approval 
I am fetching Reporter's Manger Details (Name,Email Address, ID) from an Employee Database or using a LDAP query.

When a User Raises a Request with Approval,  His Manager should be assigned as Approver without User selecting the Approver himself.


Thanks & Regards
