What is the best way to get the supervisor of the reporter?

I am new to Jira Service desk and we are looking at transitioning to Jira Service desk.  We have some approvals for Service request that will need to go to the requestors supervisor/manager.  how do I get that information.  I know if it stored in Active Directory but I don't know how to access it in Jira Service Desk.  We are currently Data Center but looking at cloud.

Hi Dan,

There are post workflow functions where you can read the user's properties and place them into a field.  Look at Jira Misc Workflow Extensions OR Jira Workflow Toolbox.

That's how we manage.

We use and really like Active Directory Attributes Sync We are doing exactly what you mention - accessing that attribute for purposes of approvals.
