IT Service Management with Adaptavist
Putting ITSM at the heart of your digital transformation initiatives
Almost every organisation today relies on IT tools and systems to deliver services to both internal and external customers.
As organisations scale and become more complex, so do their IT delivery systems. And while it can become increasingly challenging, delivering responsive, customer-first service to your users is integral to staying agile and competitive.
While adopting service management technology like Jira Service Management (formerly known as Jira Service Desk) can help, simply applying tools to fix a problem is not the answer.

Webinar: Accelerate your digital transformation with ESM
Transitioning from ITSM to ESM to meet your digital transformation goals
In a time when radical change is business as usual, successful organisations have recognised that service management is a key driver for digital transformation.
With expert advice from Adaptavist’s Phill Fox and Richard Crampton, this webinar highlights the benefits of shifting from IT Service Management (ITSM) to Enterprise Service Management (ESM) practices, and the importance of being able to scale, remain agile, and be competitive.
Your Jira Service Management is the beating heart of your organisation's support operations. Not only is it the frontline for engaging with your end-users, it's also the face of your support team and a critical service ensuring your users and business operations run as smoothly as possible.
Considering the critical importance of Jira Service Management to your organisation's day-to-day operations, it's even more important that it does exactly what it says on tin, responds exactly how you expect it to, and is operating at peak performance. This is where customising your Jira Service Management can make all the difference.
We've been working with customers across sectors to build and extend Jira Service Management solutions for years, so we speak from experience when it comes to customising Jira Service Management to get the most out of. After all, you can always make something that is good, better.
Here are some of our favourite ways to customise Jira Service Management using our very own apps.
ScriptRunner for Jira
Integration with external applications
There's almost no limit to the external applications you can link Jira Service Management to with ScriptRunner for Jira. But let's give you one example. Let's say you would like to prove whether a particular user of your product is entitled to the support they are requesting. To save you from individually checking each received support ticket and cross referencing that information in your CRM database, you can link Jira Service Management to your external application and pull that information right into Jira Service Management where you need it most. There's no need to individually look up information for every customer as requests come in - thanks to ScriptRunner for Jira, the information is already there.
Automatically update linked incident tickets
How about extending an inbuilt automation that already exists in Jira Service Management? While Jira Service Management includes tools out-of-the-box to help with automating tasks, you may find yourself looking for more.
Let's say you want to update all incident tickets linked to a problem ticket. By using ScriptRunner's script listener feature (which waits for a specific event to occur in Jira before carrying out an action if the event occurs), updates can be copied from a problem ticket to all the linked incident tickets, automatically.
Find all tickets linked to an incident
Picture this: your support team is flooded with a major crisis, and you're desperately trying to find all the incidents linked to the open problem. Once you've found the incidents, you also want to look at all the other related tickets until you reach the end of the chain. ScriptRunner's Enhanced Search Filters enable you to streamline your issue searches for quicker access to the data that you see, making the process of finding those linked tickets quick and painless.
Standardise with "Copy Project"
Imagine you want a new support portal for specific feature requests. You want to route them to a department other than the support team, and want to avoid implementing the configuration changes manually. ScriptRunner's "Copy Project" built-in script allows administrators to clone Jira Service Management specific configurations, which means instead of having to manually implement the configuration, you can simply copy the configuration of a main template. Not only will this save you heaps of time, it'll help you maintain standardisation across all of your Service Desk Portals.
Use ScriptRunner to encourage ITSM Jira best practices
ScriptRunner gives you capabilities in Jira Service Management that you didn't know were possible, with built-in scripts that work out-of-the-box. In the Adaptavist Library we have a collection of tailor-made scripts designed to help encourage the adoption of key ITSM Jira best-practices using ScriptRunner.
A few more ways to extend your Jira Service Management
These are just a few of the ways you can use ScriptRunner to supercharge your Jira Service Management experience. However, if you're still after more add-on apps to help you get more out of Jira Service Management, here are a few more suggestions:
Give your knowledge base a refresh
Do you have a knowledge base set up in Confluence alongside your Jira Service Management? With a little help from Content Formatting Macros for Confluence you can create a powerful, customisable, and beautiful intranet. There's nothing worse than having a knowledge base that's difficult for uses to navigate and where content gets lost. Content Formatting Macros for Confluence enables teams to enhance the look and feel of your knowledge base and bend the UI to suit your specific business needs.
Keep sensitive data secure
We all have sensitive data in Jira Service Management that could benefit from an extra layer of security, whether that be attachments or text fields. Encryption For Jira enables you to encrypt the data in your database and file-system thanks to the Encrypted Custom Field feature, even down to the specific project's attachments, giving you the flexibility to encrypt exactly what needs it the most.
Configuration and project migrations made easy
If you're looking to save time by automating manual tasks when making configuration and project migrations, then Project Configurator for Jira is for you. Project Configurator supports Jira Service Management so you can migrate Jira Service Management objects just as you would in Jira. It's perfect for implementing a staging to production process and migrating these changes from your staging environment to live production without making any errors.
Jira Service Management customised to your specific needs
On its own, Jira Service Management is a pretty versatile tool and delivers a highly integrated solution that links relevant business departments.
By integrating ScriptRunner and other Adaptavist apps with Jira Service Management, you can create an ITSM platform that is not only uniquely tailored to your needs as an organisation, but that is far more cost-effective.
It's never too late to get the most out of Jira Service Management by adding a few apps to help customise your experience. What's more, we've been helping customers migrate to, and enhance, Jira Service Management for years so we're perfectly placed to help you along the way.
