Approval not working

The approval as broken and I am trying to fix it has we have had some system errors from the cloud. 

I am trying to take a muliple user picker custom field cal Approver and add this to the workflow for the approval. When I go to configure the only options are Manager and Requestor. I want to add my Customer Field Approver to that list or take off Manager and Requestor. I am using the Cloud version of Service Desk. 

How do I go about this.

The resolution is with the data lost to our instance we had to do the following either create another field or use a field that was not the approver field and or make a new workflow for approval and re-create the approval field and associate it to the new workflow. 


We are working on a restore of the information lost with cloud support but with either fix there will be some data to configure. 

Hope this helps all that had this issue.

Hello @Aaron Geister

Thank you for reaching out.

Can you please confirm if you are using a Classic or Next-gen project? 

Using a Classic project, I was able to easily create a user picker custom field (Multiple users) and select it in the Service desk workflow by following the steps of both links below:

Add a new custom field to a project 

Add an approval to a workflow

That being said, please provide us with the following information so we can better understand and troubleshoot your issue:

  1. What are the "system errors" you are facing when trying to set the approvals? Can you provide us with a screenshot of the error?
  2. Are you trying to set a pre-determined list of approvers or let your customer choose their approvers?
  3. Check if the field you are trying to set the approvers is a Userk picker custom field (multiple users)

Let us know if you have any questions.

I have it handled with Atlassian Cloud Support. Thank you though.
