I'm the administrator of a board and I would like to set a default reporter for new issues. Also the default assignee to be the person who is creating the issue.
The default assignee is set for a project not for a board.
A board is a set of tickets that can come from one or more projects. So in each project you need to change the defaut assignee if you have issue that come from several project.
Here what the documentation says:
Different people may play different roles in different projects — the same person may be a leader of one project but an observer of another project. JIRA enables you to allocate particular people to specific roles in your project.
- Project Lead — user fulfilling the role of project leader. Used as the 'Default Assignee' (except for JIRA Software projects where it is set to 'Unassigned'), and potentially elsewhere in JIRA (e.g. in permission schemes, notification schemes, issue security schemes and workflows).
- Default Assignee — the user to whom issues in this project are initially assigned when created
A board does not and cannot influence default assignee. Default assignee is controlled by a few different methods, e.g. Components, Project Lead, Automation. A board is just a visual representation of the underlying issues. The concept of default report is a bit uncommon as you generally want the reporter to represent who actually created the issue. That said the same thing applies, this isn’t controlled by the board.
