I was creating Jira issue by using direct html link to prepopulate some fields and I wanted to fill the reporter field with the current user. I tried making reporter=currentuser but it doesn't work. Instead it shows the following error and fills the field with the string currentuser.
the link looks like this:
<a id="issue" href="https://jira-trial.atlassian.net/secure/CreateIssueDetails!init.jspa?pid=10001&issuetype=10001&reporter=currentuser&summary=testing"> create issue
I would appreciate your help!!
Hi @Mikiyas Mohammed Welcome to Atlassian Community!
You have to put username of the repoter, currentuser doesn't work.
To have the reporter field default to the currently logged in user, the user must be logged in and must not have the
Modify Reporter permission.
@Jinhwan Kim reporter=currentuser doesn't work beacuse in Reporter field "currentuser" option is not avaiable. You have to put exact username or you can remove this reporter=currentuser from link. Better to remove this and remove "Reporter" field as well from screen. When user create an issue and user is logged in into JIRA during issue creation, then jira automatically pick current user as Reporter. In case, if user is trying to create issue without logging into JIRA, in that you have to sepcify default reporter.
