How are you specifiying the reporter in Testlink, and do they have a valid JIRA account?

yes, i'm specifying valid JIRA account, here is the configuration. <issuetracker> <username>JIRA-USERNAME</username> <password>JIRA-PASSWORD</password> <uribase>http://localhost:8080/</uribase>; <uriapi>http://localhost:8080/rest/api/latest/</uriapi>; <uriview>http://localhost:8080/browse/</uriview>; <!--<userinteraction>1</userinteraction>--> <!-- 1: User will be able to manage following attributes from GUI --> <!-- Issue Type, Issue Priority, Affects Versions, Components --> <!-- 0: values for attributes will be taken FROM this config XML from GUI --> <!-- Configure This if you want be able TO CREATE ISSUES --> <projectkey>MYPROJECT</projectkey> <issuetype>2</issuetype> </issuetracker>

It's impossible to create issues from TL directly since the customized fields of JIRA are not supported by TL, only thing you can do is to link existing JIRA bugs to TL. Pls refer to 

@Yogiraj Ghumade

In your testlink solution modify the following file this fix the issue for me


and comment out the following block of code which starts on line 377

/* if(property_exists($opt, 'reporter'))
$issue['fields']['reporter'] = array('name' => (string)$opt->reporter);


hope this helps.
