def jiraAuthenticationContext = ComponentAccessor.getJiraAuthenticationContext()
def originalUser = jiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()
def userManager = ComponentAccessor.getUserManager()
def adminUser = userManager.getUserByName("deployer")
assert adminUser // make sure an admin user called "deployer" exists in all instances
// make REST requests here
