How to modify the reporter?

Hi,

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?

Seeing also that you refer to issues (plural) then you might be wanting to change reporter on more than one issue at a time.

The "Bulk Operation Step 3 of 4" screen allows you to change reporter.

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.

just like nic said...make sure your projects permission includes you in "Modify Reporter"

Make sure that you add "Reported" into your Edit screen or whichever screen you would like to show.
