It appears as if I opened a random issue and assigned it to myself

Weirdest thing happened today. It appeared that I assigned to myself a bug in a random project (we have many projects in our instance). We have seen this through the History tab.


What would cause that to happen ? 

I ruled out: 

1. something automatic from the workflow

2. people login in to my account from administration (because I didn`t receive any mail on this)

3. I am not project lead

4. I couldn`t have missclicked that because I didn`t access that.

PS: Audit didn`t have any events ( audit never helps on Cloud :( )


Changed the password for the time being. Looking forward to your thoughts on this.

Hi Mihai,

sounds strange indeed but is very hard to judge from the remote.

Can you rule out it was an (probably accidentally) introduced Automation rule of some kind?

Other than that changing the password might be always a good precaution :)
