Send On Behalf Permissions

Hello,

I have been tasked with creating a standardized onboarding form that sends the completed information to our helpdesk ticketing system. 

The flow works fine, but when it is submitted, the ticket is opened with my name and not the name of the person that is filling out the form, which means I get all of the emails and replies to the ticket.

 

We want to use the ticketing system to manage these tickets and reply back to the requester.

I have tried to use the  "From (Send as) Responders' Email" but I am naturally getting the error that I am not authorized to send mail on behalf of the specified sending account.

My manager understandably has a few apprehensions giving me "Send As" permissions from all users in AD, so is there a way that I can do this without those permissions?

Thank you for all your help.

I talked with my boss and we just decided to grand send as permissions to my account, with the caveat that I should never use it for nefarious purposes. That has corrected the issue.

 

Thanks again all!

Does your ticketing system have an API that allows you to create tickets and pass in parameters such as the requestor? I think ServiceNow has this option (if enabled), but depends on what you are using.

We are using Zoho.

I am not sure if it has this functionality, but I will look into it.

 

Thanks for your reply.

Are you using ServiceNOW for your ticketing system by chance? You can work with your ServiceNOW developers to create inbound actions to process the e-mails and put the information of who the ticket should be created for in the body of the e-mail. Inbound email actions (servicenow.com). Like the Power Automation When a new mail arrives action, ServiceNOW can look for specific information in the subject line as well as who the e-mail comes from.

 

For all of our flows that use this method, I send them from a shared mailbox that I can send from. This eliminates the need to be able to send e-mails on behalf of all the users.

Good that you got it working.

 

Another approach is to create a service account that's used to run the flow and that account has send on behalf of.

 

I looked and found that Zoho Desk does have an api for creating tickets if you did still want to investigate that as an option.

And a question in the community relating to the ticket request.
