Comments, actions, attachments
How to send actions and attachments between Jira and TOPdesk with this integration.

Communication

With this functionality, we would like to make it possible to communicate back and forth between TOPdesk en Jira. You can sent actions and attachments from TOPdesk to Jira and comments from Jira to TOPdesk.

Example of communication

A customer creates a first line call in the TOPdesk help desk. The TOPdesk operator sends the incident through to Jira. In Jira, a different person is handling the incident but hasn't got enough information: a screenshot is missing. This can be solved by enabling attachments.

From TOPdesk to Jira

Enable actions and attachments

You can use the settings to turn the comment stream on/off. Follow the steps below to do this:
  • Navigate to settings -> apps
  • Find the TOPdesk integration in the side bar
  • Navigate to change/incidents settings (you need to configure them both separately)
  • Turn on the checkbox to show actions and attachments.
Here's an example on how actions and attachments sent from TOPdesk look like in the TOPdesk activity stream tab:

Here's an example on how to sent comments from Jira to TOPdesk. This comment will be created as an action in TOPdesk.
Please note that only comments in the "TOPdesk" activity stream tab will be sent to TOPdesk. Comments placed in the "comments" activity stream tab will not be sent through.

Invisible to caller

Making a comment invisible to the caller will result in it only being available in the TOPdesk operator portal. Customers will only be able to see the public or not invisible to caller messages.
Here's an example on how a visible and invisible message look inside of the TOPdesk activity stream tab:
Note: Sending invisible to caller messages are currently only available for incidents. This is due to a limitation in TOPdesk.
