Field not visible when creating new issue

We're running JIRA 6.2 and are evaluating FSP. At the moment it is configured like this:

Custom Free Text Field:

1. Reporter - Allow All
2. Everyone - Deny All

The field is not shown when creating a new issue. Following the default JIRA behaviour in permission schemes, the field should be visible for the reproter (who is there ... even when creating an issue) and hidden to everyone else.

Any ideas? Is this a bug? Will it be fixed. With this behaviour the plugin is not useful for us.

Yeah, that's the trick.

Hello, 'Reporter' condition

'Reporter' condition does not work on issue creation because reporter is actually undefined. Someone with enough permissions can edit this field.
But especially for this case there is 'Issue Status Condition' with 'On Create' value. So your rules should look like:
1. Issue Status - On Create - Allow All
2. Everyone - Deny All

Hope this helps.
