How to change reporter for an issue?


How to change the reporter for an issue? I created a project and selected project lead, but when I got to issues I see they have a totally other person as a reporter. I need to edit that. How can I do that?

Hi @egle_samuoliene ,

you need to edit the permissions of your project or add yourself to the administrator project role. There's a permission called "Modify Reporter":


I think the default setting is that every user in the project role "Administrator" is able to change the reporter. 

Hey - can you give more context on how to do this? How do I navigate to this page?
