For some reason, a few issues have reporter "Anonymous". I want to put the name of a person instead.
I have the "Modify Reporter" permissions enabled but I cannot find any place where I can modify the "Reporter" field.
Where do I change the "Reporter" field of a Jira issue?
My guess is that although you have got the right permissions (my first guess when I read the title was permissions were stopping you), you have not put the reporter on the "edit" screen. Have a look at the projects "screen scheme" and drill down to the edit screen for the issue-type you are trying to edit.
I was having an odd problem where no one could modify the reporter on a custom sub-task issue type, but they could on every other issue type. It was confusing the heck out of me, but this solved the problem. Adding reporter to the edit screen ftw! Thanks so much for posting this!
