I have a specific requirement on jira (jira5.0.2)
I want to be able to bulk transition multiple issues to set their assignee as their reporter.
It is very tedious to edit each issue manually and set the assignee as its reporter (for testing purposes).
I want to make use of the bulk change feature but do not know how do i bulk change multiple issues to set assignee as the reporter.
I'm afraid you can't do it. Bulk edits set "field = absolute-value", not "field = some data extracted from somewhere else"
Your choices are to break up your bulk edits, or start coding/scripting. (Breaking the edits up means "filter for reporter = A, set all assignees to A, filter for reporter =B, set all assignees to B, etc)
Or similar to Vincent's suggest - create a global transition with a post-function that executes one line of script:
reporter = assignee
(make sure it's first post-function in the list). And then bulk transition all issues through that transition.
