Jira 7 API reporter issue



I have created a plugin with custom functionality for our Jira 6.3.6. Recently, we upgraded our Jira to 7.3.5 and since then the plugin is no longer working. Upon checking the logs i found this error below which is related to getting the reporter of the ticket.

Caused by: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue.getReporter()Lcom/atlassian/crowd/embedded/api/User;


This seems to be removed since Jira 7. How do i get the ticket reporter now in Jira 7 using the API?

Your code needs to be updateed to use ApplicationUser objects instead of Crowd users.
