We're encountering an odd issue where no one can edit the reporter on this Issue. It just pops up a tooltip box "Reporter can't be edited". I have confirmed the permissions for "Modify Reporter":
The user requesting this change is in Engineering.Sec. I am in jira-administrators, and so our my fellow Jira Admins and none of us can change it either. We can't change the reporter for any Issues within this Project. I've searched through other posts in this board and around the web and nothing has come up that's been able to help, so I'm hoping its just a slightly more unusual issue that someone else has encountered.
You should double check to make sure the reporter field is present on the edit screen for the issue type in question. I was able to replicate your issue by taking the field off my screen.
The issue layout continues to show the reporter field even if it is removed from the screen. Please check the actual underlying screen to check whether or not the reporter field is present.
Instead of clicking on "issue layout" on the left-hand menu, select "Screens".
From there, look at the screen tied to the issue type where you are having the issue. Check to see if the "reporter" field is present.
Was this the only screen present when you looked? It needs to be added to the screen which is tied to the view operation.
