My question is , i want my developers to add issues, but as soon as its added, myself needs to be the Reporter , so that i get notified on everything wrt issues.

Hi @Vincent Jacobs ,

Next-Gen Project or Classic Project?

I suggest you not to modify the reporter.Modify the email notification scheme so that you can receive email notifications for all issues.



its Next-Gen Project

Hi @Vincent Jacobs ,

Currently ,there is no notification scheme in the next-gen project. You can refer to the following post to implement scheduled push by subscription.

There are post-functions available which you can add to your workflow to update certain fields upon issue creation.  However I've just taken a look (Server version 8.2) and Reporter is not available as a field to update, but it might be on your cloud version.

There are add-ons available (such as Jira Misc Workflow Extensions) which allow you to update additional fields.  You then simply add a Post-Function to the "create" transition of your workflow to update the Reporter.
