Find Jira's created by a user

We have some automated code that creates some issues and sets the reporter.

Is there a search query I can perform to find jira's created by a user, ie the user that was logged in and created the jira, not the reporter.

I don't think Jira actualy keeps a record of this.

You could use a hidden field and fill this in automatically during your workflow transition. This field could contain the username of the creator. Then you could filter on this field.

Just an idea.

Yep, that's what we do. Reporter can be modified, so you can enter an issue on behalf of someone else, but "creator" is hidden and automatically set. Obviously doesn't help with existing issues, but should solve this for you going forward.

Yes, there is no field in the database for the "real" creator, only for the reporter. And if the reporter is changed while creating the issue there is no chance that the real creator is stored somewhere.
