Get API to retrieve approver details from Jira Service Desk

I am looking for the API which will return the approver details from the Jira Service Desk. I have already gone through this{issueIdOrKey}/approval-getApprovals , But I want to query approver details using JQL Advanced Search or else is there any other way to get all the approver details for the given request instead of using{issueIdOrKey}/approval-getApprovals.

There are some nice JQL functions around approvals. See

If you have different user fields for different approvals and want to know more than, "What are the issues needing approval", like "I want to know who has approvals outstanding", that's challenging, because that pivots from an Issue view to a User view, which is not really what Jira does.

Let's say you want a daily prompt to approvers You can do an automation around this, like:

  1. Daily scheduled action
  2. If: updated < 7d
    • Note: you could probably do a more advanced check here like when the issue was last transitioned.
  3. And advanced compare: {{issue.Approvals.finalDecision}} contains pending
  4. Then: edit issue: add request participants:  {{#issue.Approvals}}{{if(equals(finalDecision,"pending"),approvers)}}{{/}}
  5. And: add customer visible comment:
    • Dear {{#issue.Approvals}}{{if(equals(finalDecision,"pending"),approvers.displayName.join(", "))}}{{/}} these issues are still waiting for your approval.
