Im trying run an api call from the postfunction to get fields data. but the downside is we cant use the hard coded / basic auth due too restrictions. can we make use of current user to run the API.

Hi @Gagan 

Use ComponentAccessor to get logged in user and IssueManager to perform any activity on Issue using that user who is performing either transition or any relevant action.


Hello @Pramodh M ,

i need to get the json of the fields data (like type etc) which we get from /rest/api/2/field.

But to do so it needs authentication and for the auth i need to make use current user. as this call is run by admins only.

i cannot hard code the creds to the code.
