Tempo REST API - Worklogs - How to retrieve the latest worklog author.

I need to write an automation rule based on the user who logged the work. I have Tempo Timesheets enabled on my Jira software cloud.

I am calling the Tempo REST APIs{{issue.key}} which returns all work logs on this issue. 

I need the latest author from the response. So I thought I can get that information if I can call Jira REST APIs like https://<my Jira cloud  URL>/rest/api/2/user/accountId={{}}

Then I realized the accountId is a list and I am not sure how to get only the latest worklog entry from the {{webResponse}} and the respective accountId to pass it to Jira REST API.

Is there a way to get the user who triggered the worklog from Tempo or Jira REST APIs?

Hi @Rekhadevi Velur ,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I don't have any exact solution, but I just wanted to share some ideas with you.

Are you aware there's "Work logged" trigger in automation? Then you can work with {{worklog}} smart value. It is not possible to use {{}} as this is Tempo user, but maybe you can use {{}} to get the detail of the exact worklog using REST API?

Thanks for your Reply!

I am able to retrieve the author calling Tempo REST API using 
{{}} in the web request action. The URL would be  


and then retrieved the author from the response using the smart value

I can successfully log {{}} or {{}} to rule's audit log, but I am unable to send email to {{}}'s email address.


I get error

"Send email
Could not send email, the 'To' address field is empty. If you have referenced a field it may be empty."


please help
