Create JIRA Issue from Confluence fails with: Reporter is required

I have atrusted link between JIRA and Confluence. (Trusted Application, OAth and Basic Acess)

Both JIRA and Confluence are using the same LDAP for user/permission.

JIRA 5.2.1 and Confluence 4.0.7

When creating issue the Projects and other fields are communicated OK from JIRA.

Have you tried removing Reporter field from the screen you use for Issue Create?


This works - first tried to change the Screen from the workfloweditor - but these changes (intemittently possible?!) never solved ny problem.

Adding a new "Create Issue"(without reporter) screen to the screen scheme made all the difference.

Thanks again
