Hi Atlassian Team,
I‘m developing an service system on JIRA，I need add some users to some groups，the API tells that I should use API“add user to group”，but the parameter——’accountId‘ is required，where should I get it？ I’m try to use API“get accountid”, but the parameter——"username" is required, where can I get it？
And I try to use ‘query’，for example：
But I still cant get it
Welcome to community! You will need to find a user first in order to extract an accountId. Better to search all users out and filter the ones you need based on displayname or email_address. You can use the endpoint /rest/api/3/users/search to search for every user on the instance and perform filtering
I have a package called jiraone you could try and see if it simplifies things for you. you can get all users and save to a file, then extract the accountid and use it to add users to groups. For example
from jiraone import LOGIN, USER, endpoint, file_reader
user = "email" password = "token" link = "https://yourinstance.atlassian.net" LOGIN(user=user, password=password, url=link)
USER.get_all_users(pull="active", user_type="atlassian", file="user_file.csv")
read = file_reader(file_name="user_file.csv")
# the read variable will hold accountId of each user on index 0, you can filter
# by display Name for a particular user as the datatype would be a list.
# some filtering done here ...
group = "Dev Team"

This is one of the method you could test out.
