JIRA Service Desk 2.1 Release Notes
Raise requests on behalf of your customers on the Customer Portal
Agents can now raise requests for customers on the Customer Portal with the new Raise this request on behalf of field.
Only agents will see this field and they can see existing users who have access to the service desk when searching for customers. This means:
- In a restricted service desk, all the users present on the customer list in the People tab are displayed.
- In an open service desk, all the users in the system are shown.
Agents can see this field unless they do not have the Modify Reporter project permission. If you use the standard JIRA Service Desk permission scheme, agents already have this permission by default through the Service Desk Team role.
Note: This is available for
- all purchases of JIRA Service Desk on or after September 10, 2014, and
- customers who have moved to the new pricing model if the purchase was made before September 10, 2014.
Edit request types
Agents can now easily change the request type for Service Desk requests.
It is now also possible to change the request type for multiple requests when you bulk edit issues.
Improved navigation on the Customer Portal
The global portal now has breadcrumbs that help you navigate between requests and the portal more easily.
