Reproducing the Issue

  4. Can see that user "Y" doesn't show up while searching


User X trying to change the author of the report to Y doesn't have access to view user "Y" in Employee Profile.


Provide access to user "X" to view the Employee Profile of "Y".

Once the access is provided we can change the author name of report to "Y".
