JMWE Automated Approval based on User Entity Property


I'm builiding an automated approval process based on user properties that i have fed into the JWME user properties via API. Currently having problem with finding the right syntax to extract accountId from email. Row in the editor looks like this: 



Current script looks like this: 

{{ issue.fields.reporter | userProperty ( "manager" ) | dump | replace('{"email":"', "") | replace('"}', "") }}

I am replacing and trimming my string to have only email value at the end, but i am struggling to find a method how to convert that email into the user object and its accountId. Is there anyone that could potentially help me with this?

Hi @Matus Klaudiny _EXT_ 

This is how you can extract the email:

{%set email = issue.fields.reporter | userProperty ( "manager" ) | field("email") %}

And to get the user that has that email:

{%set user = email | findUsers | first %}

Finally, to return the accountId (for use in a Set Field Value post function for example):

{{ user.accountId }}

The whole thing in one go:

{{ issue.fields.reporter | userProperty ( "manager" ) | field("email") | findUsers | first | field("accountId") }}
