Fields visibility

This section provides information on how to define for which groups selected field will be visible in the request types on the Customer Portal.

Warning

This feature replaced a Hide field from view option which was available in the previous version in general setting in the global configuration.

Note
  • Remember to add the fields to the issue screen and to the request type.
  • To check your settings, go to:
    Project Settings > Request Types > Edit fields > Add a field.

Steps

To set configuration:

  1. Choose Projects at the top of the screen.
  2. Choose the service project you want to configure.
  3. From service project sidebar, select Project settings > Visibility in the Extension for Jira Service Management section.
  4. Go to the Fields section.

  6. Configure the following:
    • Request type: Select the request type for which this configuration will be applied on the Customer Portal.

    • Field: Select the field from the list.

    • Hide for all: Set the state of switch to on to hide selected fields for all users.

      Warning

      Selected field will be hidden only on the Create issue screen on the Customer Portal. When the agent fills the field in Jira, it automatically becomes visible also for the customer on the request details view. The customer is not allowed to fill the field himself on the request form, he only sees the field after it’s given a value by the agent.

    • Groups: Pick group(s) for which selected field will be visible. You can restrict field on the Customer Portal for selected user groups but note that after submitting the ticket, its details will be visible on the issue in Jira for all users which have permission to browse the project.

      Note

      To add a new group, go to Jira Administration > User management > Groups, enter name of the group and click Add.
