Can I set the reporter when I create a new issue? For example, the admin create an issue and it's reporter is an another user.

easiest way to create and update Jira w Python is to use JIRA module,

pip install jira

import sys
from jira import JIRA
from jira.exceptions import JIRAError

def jira_connect(server, user, pw):
    ''' connects to jira server and returns jira object '''
    try:
        log.info("Connecting to JIRA: %s" % server)
        jira_options = {'server': 'https://'+server, 'verify': False}
        jira = JIRA(options=jira_options, basic_auth=(user, pw))
        return jira
    except Exception, e:
        log.error("Failed to connect to JIRA: %s" % e)
        sys.exit(1)


server = jira01.company.com
user = 'admin'
pw = 'mypasswd'

jira = jira_connect(server, user, pw)

# update assignee
issue = jira.issue('PROJ-123')

try:
  issue.update(fields={ 'assignee': 'New Guy' })
except JIRAError, exep:
  print("Failed to update Assignee %s" % exep)
  sys.exit(1)
