    Regarding bulk update of existing users, I think we can muddle through by using bulk export to get the list and then perform a bulk update. However, bulk verification does not solve our email verification problem. What we are looking for there is a way to simply skip the verification process for each user with one of our internal domains *as they are created*, rather than after the fact in bulk.

    @... - At my company, we're using Zapier to automate the email verification process for new users in Zendesk. It's surprisingly simple to setup thanks to Zapier's integration with Zendesk (although Zendesk is a Premium integration, so access will be dependent on your Zapier plan) so worth checking out if you happen to use Zapier as well.

    My Zap looks something like this:

    Trigger: Zendesk App > New User in Zendesk

    Action: Zendesk App > Update User in Zendesk > changes Verified to True.

    You should be able to customize the zap further if there are just specific users you'd like to auto-verify, but figured it was worth sharing in case it'd be helpful for your use case.

    I'm looking to use a trigger to assign all requestors on tickets with a specific tag to be added to a certain organization

     

    i.e. if a ticket has tag: xyz, requestor organization: abc

    Hi Kelsey,

    You can actually make use of the following options below to add tags and other user data in bulk for your users and for your organization/s:

    Bulk importing users

    How can I bulk update users?

    Cheers!

    If we add a new org with "Can view own tickets only", then we give a user "Can view tickets from user's org" access...

    Will that single user receive notifications of new tickets logged by others in the same org and updates on them or would they need to check the tickets under the help centre "My Activity" to view any updates?

    I realise that this has been mentioned a few times, but the ability to only allow "Add Comments" at the Org level and not per-user still feels backwards.

    The usual request we get is that a select few admins at our customers want to be able to edit all tickets, and they are happy to have all users view all tickets, but never the other way around.

    Please consider this a feature request, thank you.

    @... They will not receive email notifications, unless they're the ticket requester of it they've been CC'd on the ticket. You're correct that they'd need to log in and check the tickets under the "My Activity" page.

    I created an organization and set the access "Can view own tickets only" for it, but I set the access for the end users in this org as "Can view tickets from user's org". One of the user(end user 1) created some tickets and CC'd another user(end user 2), the end user 2 can only view those tickets in the tab "Requests I'm CC'd on" but not in the "Organization Requests" view.  I checked those ticket status, they are all in archived status. 

    Does the tab "Organization Requests" only include unarchived tickets?

    Is it possible to assign automatically an organisation based only on the brand? (specific dedicated support email)

    Hi Alan, if you go to the top of this article, you should be able to click the "Unfollow" button. Sorry about the spam -- our spam filter catches a lot of it, but some slips through. We try to clean out the spam each day during the week, but if spam does make it past our filters, email notifications will be sent.

    The article above states the following:

    "When you set up user mapping, users from the specified email domains are automatically added to this organization when they submit a request for the first time or register. "

    This statement implies that new accounts with that email domain will be added to the organization when they submit a reques for the fist time or register, however, I found out the hard way this statement is absolutely untrue. All existing users created prior to me adding the domain were automatically assigned to the organization. According to the article:

    "Important: If a user from the specified domain submitted a ticket before user mapping was configured, you must add them to the organization manually. They won't be added automatically." 

    Can Zendesk please clarify how things are supposed to work for existing users?

    Hi Stefano,
     
    In doing a bit of testing on my own account, I found that the behavior you experienced with user mapping appears to be expected. I created a new organization and set up user mapping for a domain in which I had a number of verified users, and I was able to replicate this across different organizations I created.
     
    It appears that this article does not give a hard limit to the situations that users will automatically be added to an organization, and I think that can be clarified in the text. It seems that user mapping will automatically add verified users when a domain is added to an organization, If the user is unverified, they will not.

    Is there a way to automatically assign a group to a new organization?  We are using Zapier to create new organizations and we have multiple brands so I'd like to be able to automatically add a group to the organizations.  I was thinking maybe with webhooks but wasn't sure how that would work.  Any suggestions?

    Hi Alan,
     
    My name is Tod, and I am with the Zendesk Customer Advocacy Team.

    Regarding the inquiry about the automatic assignment of a group to an organization, you could do this via a trigger if you have brands that you want to use as the variable.
     
    Here's a screenshot I created in my test account, where a ticket is updated, and the brand is Brand-X, the organization is not blank, and the group is not Brand-X. It uses that to change it to Brand-X for the group, in the actions:


     
    This would work, but I'm not sure if it will work with your specific workflow in mind.

    Please do not hesitate to use a ticket ID in your account as an example in any elaboration on the wished-for workflow, so we can work on getting you there.
     
    Looking forward to helping you resolve this issue.

    Best regards,

    Tod

    Tod,

    This updates the group on the ticket.  I want to update the group on the organization record when the organization is created which needs to happen before the ticket is created.
