Available for: Enterprise plan
Set up by: Company admins
Enterprise plan admins can take advantage of the request management feature and optimize the process of giving permissions to a user. When a new user needs to get access to a Miro team or upgrade a license, they send a request to promote their access. Company admins can configure the way the admins will be notified of the request: whether send a notification to admins, to redirect the requester to a service desk, or automatically convert their request into a ServiceNow ticket.

3) Set filed values from the email body to configure additional settings and set up processes of converting a Miro email into a ServiceNow ticket (optional). For example, you can assign a newly created ticket to a particular person.
Option 3: Redirect user to a service desk
The requester will be redirected to a service desk of your choice where they create a ticket manually. To enable the option, enter the link to which the requester will be redirected in the Service desk URL field.
✏️ If you use ServiceNow you also need to create a catalog icon for Miro in ServiceNow as an additional step.
Configuring redirect of a user to a service desk
See below how the settings you configured will influence experience of your account end-users.
The request access management is applied to several cases when an end-user requests access to a board/team or an upgrade for another user:
1) When a free restricted user requests editing access on a board
2) When an account user tries to invite another person who has a Free restricted license or convert their access on a board to editor
3) When a newly registered user requests to join a team discoverable for users with their domain
4) When a registered user requests to join a team discoverable for them.
Once they request a license or access, one of the following events will be triggered depending on your request management controls:
1) an email request will be sent to Company admins
2) a service desk ticket will be created in ServiceNow
3) the user will be redirected to a service where they will be able to create a request:
