How to request Atlassian Users via Jira API?

baloghbence0915 April 28, 2022

Hi all,


I'm trying to reach a list of user via Web API.
My qoal is:

  • Request list of users where the name matches for "Bob" or it is anything (2 different requests)
  • Users should be real users in this case where accountType="atlassian" and not "app" or anything else

I have tried:

/rest/api/3/user/search/query?query=is [accountType] is "atlassian"




But no luck so far.

I have done some investigation around the community, but I didn't find a solution, that could work for me.

Also the attached documentations above are in lack of examples about the usage of those complex parameters.

Could you help me please?

Thanks in advance,


I'd like to feed a user selector component by this.
