Get and edit custom user properties (like "Favorite Color") in Cloud ?

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to get and edit user properties (as defined here, not user profile) in ScriptRunner for Jira Cloud?

A script for Script Console would be very helpful but I would also be grateful for some documentation (for Cloud).

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__  and thanks for your answer!

I see that there's no "Apps cannot access this resource" so it should indeed work =), I should have seen that.

As for the use-case: When a user submits a request through the JSM portail, I need to get his properties (as an example: phoneNumber, computerId, proID... These are already added through an external batch to the user) and automatically fill the right fields in the created issue. 

I got a little lost in the documentation as I kept finding answers for the Server version, thanks for your help!


Hi @Dylan Pokun , you are welcome :) I can see that for your usecase it should be doable :)
