I am doing an integration process to create project into Jira 6.0 application. One of the project field requires the username/owner value. The application from which the integration triggers outputs email address. I need to query JIRA to find the username corresponding to this email address. I read about the below URI that takes username as the parameter. (below)
But really my parameter here is email address for which i need username as the output. Does JIRA support something like this
How to access username using Jira's REST API?
I was able to retrieve the username of a given user using JIRA's REST API:
Where "firstname.lastname@example.org" is the email address of a given user.
Even if you provide the email address of a user, you need to use the "username" parameter in the URL.
Hope this helps.
