Reporter shows "undefined" / "Anonymous" in Service Mgmt Portal issues



I have a serious problem with my new service management portal. 3 out of 4 issuetype show reporter = undefined (Anonymous when you look it up in the issue search) and therefore issues being created arent shown to the customer. Even in the internal Jira system the issues that we reported dont have any reporter set or shown - only Anonymous.

I thought it was a problem with the permissionscheme or smth but even if I create an issue with my sys-admin user account, the issue gets lost right at the moment I click Submit in the "Create request portal dialogue". I have all permissions I need "Browse Projects" / "Administer Projects" and soon... But the reporter is always set to "Anonymous". Another strange behaviour I noticed: 1 request type / issue type behaves as usual - reporter gets set and customers can see their issues in the overview page the other 3 request types behave in this strange way I described.

I have no idea what to do next. Do yo have any idea?

Best regards

Hi Christoph,

Thanks so much for your question.

Can you please let me know which version of JSM you are using?

Can you also check your automation rules to make sure you are not accidentally clearing the reporter on issue creation?

Let me know how you go.

Thank you,

Hi Guillaume,

turned out it was a problem with the Refined for Jira SM Addon.

Best regards
