"Reporter specified is not a user" error while creating a ticket with Capture for JIRA

See attached screenshot below. Note that I can create tickets with JIRA portal just fine. I only see this issue while trying to do so with Capture for JIRA extension.



1) I'm trying this from a new machine so right from Chrome and the JIRA extension everything is freshly installed. The Capture for JIRA extension for example is installed today.

2) Logging out and logging back in did not fix the issue.

3) Restarting Chrome did not fix this issue either.

4) I can't see any field called "Reporter" to be able to edit that.


Can someone look into this and let me know if I've missed something?

Hi Abhijee,

How is configured this field in Jira? Check also the permission scheme just in case.

Hi Christian:

There actually hasn't been any change with the permission scheme to have caused this issue for me.  

However, it is only today that I'm seeing this issue. My colleagues don't see any issues while creating tickets either, with both JIRA portal and the extension.


However, I changed something on JIRA portal which potentially resolved this issue for me now.

Steps I followed:

1) On the JIRA portal, Click on + button to create Issue

2) Go to Configure fields

3) Check the checkbox for "Linked issues"


I didn't have to make any changes anywhere else. You may mark this question as answered. Thanks for your help!!

Glad you resolved it.

It is you who have to mark the accepted solution, I guess you can make a new comment and check it as resolved

This issue is resolved for me.
