Being Jira Admin, we need to get the login details like login count and last login for the list of all users from Jira-Software-users group through REST API as database access is restricted for our enterprise.

Hi @jeevitha 

This may not be 100% right as I asked gpt and have not tested it or cleaned it up but it should be a good starting point for code:

import requests

# Base URL for your Jira instance
base_url = ""

# Jira Software Users group name
group_name = "jira-software-users"

# Jira API authentication (replace with your credentials or use OAuth)
auth = ("username", "password")

# Get users in the Jira Software Users group
group_members_url = f"{base_url}/group/member?groupname={group_name}"
response = requests.get(group_members_url, auth=auth)
group_members = response.json()["values"]

# Iterate over each user in the group
for user in group_members:
user_key = user["key"]
user_details_url = f"{base_url}/user?username={user_key}"
user_response = requests.get(user_details_url, auth=auth)
user_details = user_response.json()

# Print user details (you can customize this)
print(f"User: {user_details['displayName']} ({user_details['email']})")

# Implement logic to retrieve user activity, e.g., last login or activity date
# You may need to search for issues where the user is the assignee or reporter
# and extract the latest activity date from those issues.


This library is generally easier to use:


However developers actually have a separate Atlassian community so it may be best to ask there:

They are going to be more experienced in this matter.


Hope this helps!
