Hi @Akanksha 


All fields assigned to you project you should find in Screen tab in project administration. Please check screen assigned to View Screen.

This sounds like an inexperienced admin has added a custom field called "assignee", something you should never do.  If this is a company-managed project, an admin should go to Admin -> Issues -> Custom fields, find "assignee" on the list and rename it to "not the assignee" or something.  For a team-managed project, it's project settings -> issue types -> list of fields.

Welcome to Atlassian community!

This is strange behavior. Do you use Atlassian Cloud (domain or server (your own working domain)? Aren't you confusing Assignee and reporter?
