For the life of me, I am unable to find the setting to set up the reporter of an issue is auto-assigned to the issue. Can anyone please help point me in the right direction?

So do you want the assigned to always be the same as the reporter? If so and you are using Classic projects you could use a post function in the workflow for the create transition to copy the field value from reporter to the assignee. You could also consider automation. 

Hi Jack, 
I am wanting to set the automatic assignee to the reporter. I.e. When I create a ticket for the first time I am wanting to set it so that it automatically assigns the issue to the reporter. I am unsure if this is only available in Next-gen as I am working in a classic project. I have essentially set up a board following the recommendation in this guide and just want to ensure users assign tasks to themselves so that they can set up a personal dashboard.

Thanks for your help :)
