Hello Omickron,

Please, provide us with the use case. In general it's not possible, but maybe we can find the way without changing the reporter of an issue.

Thank you.

My use case is very simple. I've imported issues from Trac. In Trac there was user "user1", but in target YouTrack there wasn't such user and "user1" was created in YouTrack.
I want to delete this user, but he has tickets and can't be deleted. So I want to move his tickets to other user, but I can't :(

It'll be very useful to change ticket's reporters for removing users.
But I think, it should be special permission for this operation.

What do you think, Andrey?

Hi Omickron,

The case is clear. Please, merge users. Under Administration-> Users-> choose target user and click Merge-> choose 'user1'. After that, target user will inherit issues from 'user1', and 'user1' will be removed.

Thank you.

Dear Andrey,
I have another scenarios, when I would like to have the possibility to change the reporter (creator):

  1. I have two account and I accidentally reported issue under "wrong" account
  2. In Mailbox integration, there is (for some reasons) "Always set Admin as reported" selected

In both cases I sometimes need to forward the "ownership" of the issue to another (existing) user.

Thank you for help.

Best Regards,
Vaclav Dobsicek
