I'm looking at the audit log and I see that most entries have an author that refers to a real JIRA user. However, some entries have an author of "JIRA".
What does this mean? Does it mean the action was not triggered by a person?
In my case I'm trying to track down who deleted an entire JIRA project. Knowing that the author is "JIRA" is not helpful.
Thanks for the information - at least I know I am not going crazy now

The help doc says that there is a known issue where the author does not show for user management events.

For example, events such as users being created or users being assigned to groups will not include the username of the user who made that change."
