How to set Reporter in a cloned issue?

Current situation:

ScriptRunner Post function 'Clones an issue, and links' used for cloning an issue from project X to project Y


Copy Assignee from JSD project to Reporter in Jira 

Not sure how to do this (in Additional issue action?)

Ideas anyone? Thanks.

Hey @Berry Kersten, assuming the users have the proper permissions in both projects, you should be able to achieve this, in Additional issue actions, with the following snippet

issue.reporter = sourceIssue.assignee

I hope that helps.

Hi Berry,

The method is going to vary depending on hosting. Here is a sample for Server that Automatically sets the assignee of an issue in a post function. Cheers.
