DoIT Shared Tools - JIRA - "WiscList User" Access

JIRA Admins can add a WiscList as a JIRA user. JIRA Project Admins may then give a WiscList User specific permissions so it may be selected from issue dropdown menus in fields such as assignee, watcher, reporter, etc.

WiscList Owner Best Practices:

  1. Determine that all the list member names and email addresses are current.
  2. Go into the WiscList Settings and verify that the Posting Security setting is set to "Anyone may post (including non-members)". The image below shows the dropdown menu which defaults to "List members may post". This setting needs to be updated for JIRA to post to the list

  3. Click the Update button in WiscList to save your changes. The image below shows the Update button for the "kb-admins" WiscList with a yellow square around it.  A green "Updated" message will appear next to that button to verify the changes were saved.

  4. Finally, notify list members that they will be receiving emails notifications from JIRA.

How to add a WiscList User to JIRA

  1. Write an email to JIRA Admins at  requesting to add a WiscList User.

  2. Provide the following information in the email:

    • Username:
    • Full Name:
    • Email:

    The image below follows the naming standard used in JIRA for the ADI Support WiscList User:

  3. JIRA Admins will notify you when the User is created.

  4. JIRA Project Admins, please follow the instructions here to add the "WiscList User" to your project.
