Default value to the Custom field

Hi friends,

I added the custom field in the screen. In the field i need to display the user name of those who log in when create an issue like a "Reporter" field. How can i perform that one.

Please share your thoughts,

Thanks in advance,

i don't think this is possible in ondemand to prepopulate custom field with current user, but you can update the field using postfunction.

using Update Issue Custom Field postfunction(from JSU plugin) you can achive that!!
