get the creation date of a user


I try to develop a plugin and I need to know the creation date of each user. I don't think that it's possible using java classes so I try to use ActiveObject but I didn't know how to do that.


Can somebody help me?

You can do it like this:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def users = ComponentAccessor.getOfBizDelegator().findAll("User");
def usernames=new ArrayList<String>();
users.each{user ->

return usernames;

Thank you for your answer.

I have just one more question. What is the type of users ? I use java so I need the type.

This was exactly what I was looking for, but I would like to have the output be sorted by createdDate, how can I do this?

This is how I sort an array of objects, which contains username/date of creation/last login date, sorted by username :

Return = tempReturn.toSorted{a, b -> a.Username <=> b.Username}

where tempReturn contains all the objects, and Return is the final result. It's probably not the best way to do it, but it works for me, and I'm not concerned by performance obligations so I just need something that works, I'll clean/improve it later (I'm a bit rusty on the dev side, haven't done any in the past 5 years)
