User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b7) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b7
Build Identifier: Bugzilla 3.6.2

At the moment its not possible to set the reporter in the Webservice method Bug.create. It would be nice to have an optional field to set a different reporter than the currently logged in user. 

If you need more information or an example just tell me and I will try to explain the situations where you could need this enhancement.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in to the web service with an administrator account
2. Import a collection of bugs of a special bug type reported by different users.
   [Bugs are reported by the users with an Outlook AddIn or a Website] 
3. The reporter will always be the administrator.
Actual Results:  
The reporter is always the administrator.

Expected Results:  
If it would be possible to change the reporter while creating a but  the correct reporter would be set instead of the admin account.

The reporter is always the person who filed the bug, I don't think that we'll be allowing that to be different. You could possibly write an extension to modify that for your local installation, though--perhaps add a new WebService function that allows setting the reporter.
