How can I lookup a customer accountId to automatically add them to my Jira Service Desk organization

I'm creating a sync between Jira Service Desk and another system that has customer email addresses and I want to bulk add customers to organizations within Jira Service Desk.

With the upcoming changes in the Rest API, I can't figure out how to convert my list of customer email addresses into an accountId .

I need the accountId in order to add customers to organizations, so it seems until I can successfully lookup the accountId I'm stuck.

Thank you~!

Hi @Nathan Given ,


you should get the accountId as a response when creating the customer. Please take a look at the REST API documentation:

Here's another way if the customer already exists:

(it turns out I needed @Jakub Sławiński suggestion with this one.)


Is there away to do a search on that call? It just returns all users for me.


@David Orazine 


I couldn't figure out a search... so I just got back all users, stored them in-memory, and had my bulk load only run once a day so as to not slow down any realtime or transactional requests.

Like David Orazine likes this

It has query parameter.

The returned list of customers can be filtered using the query parameter. The parameter is matched against customers' displayName, name, or email. For example, searching for "John", "Jo", "Smi", or "Smith" will match a user with display name "John Smith".
