Automation - how to change reporter to user who triggered the action


I would like to introduce an automation that would automatically change reporter of an issue when it is moved to a different project. The reporter should be changed to the user who triggered the event. I see that the option is there for assignee, however, not for reporter.

Is there any way this can be done?

Thank you,

Hi Jiri,

You should be able to do this, but you'll need to use a smart-value to set the reporter to the user who initiated the move operation: 


Here's a rule that should work:



Hope that helps!


I want to do a slight variation of this. I have set an automation rule to create linked issues when certain conditions are met for the trigger issue. I want the "Reporter" field of the newly created issue to be the same as the "Assignee" field of the issue that triggered the automation. How can I do this?

Did you ever find an answer to this? I have the same question. 

Thank you, This was super helpful.

no, not for the move operation.
