Jira Service Management - Cloud (Jira Service Desk)

Jira Service Management is a platform developed by Atlassian that helps organizations manage their service requests and other support-related tasks efficiently. It provides a collaborative environment for teams to handle customer inquiries, troubleshoot technical issues, and track the resolution progress. It's commonly used by IT departments, customer support teams, and various other service-oriented departments within organizations.

This Integration allows customers to create requests, create new customers, manage users, add customers to a service desk project and remove customers from a service project in Jira Service Desk straight from the Universal Controller. A typical use case is creating a request in Jira Service Desk in the event of a Task failure within the Universal Controller.
