Moving issues to another project in 5.0.6 -- anonymous reporter bug?


I am playing around with Jira 5.06. I was moving some issues between projects, and I notice that the report becomes Anonymous. This happens whether I click on the retain value box or not.

It doesn't seem to be consistent though... I was able to get it to work earlier this morning.

Not sure what is going on -- anyone experience this before?

that's my problem too. If you want to answer my recent question -- I will give you the answer!
