JIRA Service Desk and BeyondTrust Remote Support Use Cases


You must purchase this integration separately for both your Remote Support software and your JIRA Service Desk solution. For more information, contact BeyondTrust sales.

Jump to Configuration Item

Support staff can Jump to a machine from the Service Desk issue. Please note JIRA Service Desk does not have a configuration item type functionality, so the machine name must be typed in manually. The following Jump types are available:

  • Pinned Jump Client
  • Local Jump
  • Remote Jump
  • RDP
  • Shell Jump

User-Initiated Session on Existing Issue in Customer Portal

 Customer Request Portal

Users can open submitted issues and start a chat support session directly from the Service Desk issue. This provides the rep with necessary context to assist the user, while also providing the user a quick resolution. If enabled and when necessary, sessions can be elevated to full remote support sessions.


Access an Issue from the Representative Console

Using BeyondTrust's Custom Links ability, a representative can access an associated issue directly from within the rep console. This saves time when searching for the issue in Service Desk and provides the rep with any issue details, history, or other context needed to help quickly resolve the issue.

Auto-Issue Creation

Customer Service Desk Portal

For previously unreported issues or questions, the end user can submit a simple issue description to immediately begin a support session. Meanwhile, the integration takes the submitted information from the session and creates a new Service Desk issue. This saves time and unnecessary steps for the end user and support staff.
