User picker custom field to include all Ldap users



I want to create custom user picker fields as well as set the reporter field so it will allow selection from all users in my ldap system and not only JIRA users.

Is this possible?

Hi Shirley

You could use JJupin with a custom field connected to that LDAP source and "LiveFields" (JJupin feature) to update your user field based on the LDAP user field. JJupin allows you to connect to (another than Jira) LDAP data source. But as far as I know an issue reported must be a valid user in jira.

Kind regards,
