How to change "Reporter" to related issue's "Reporter"

How can I change "Reporter" via workflow to related issue's "Reporter" during "Create Issue" transition or "Copy issue function"?

Thank You

I've written this as a plugin for free. Binary you can find here:

Is it possible to use this plugin to set the Reporter to be the current user?

Great! thanks!!!

Hi @Krzysztof Skoropada [Deviniti],


I'm trying to use the plugin to set the assignee based on a custom user field, but it doesnt work. I have the following set up, can you tell me where I'm going wrong?

Check this (paste this to Script Runner )

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.IssueManager;
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue;

String issueKeyFrom = "KEY-1";
String issueKeyTo = "KEY-2";

IssueManager issueManager = ComponentAccessor.getIssueManager();
Issue issueFrom = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKeyFrom);
MutableIssue issueTo = issueManager.getIssueObject(issueKeyTo);

You'll need a post-function to do that during a transition. You might want to write one for yourself or maybe use the script-runner plugin (it provides a framework and hooks for you to write stuff like this and saves you having to write things from scratch)

Appreciate if you can paste the script for changing reporter as I need that too :-)
