Development ACE Jira Cloud how to get accountId on the backend?


I am contacting you after several unsuccessful searches.

I am on the development of an application for Jira Cloud with atlassian connect express and I am using NodeJS

I will want to retrieve the accountId of the user who forwards the request in my router at my NodeJS backend, however I cannot find any documentation on req and addon for ACE Jira Cloud.

The Rest API that Jira offers with AP.request (..) is not accessible from the backend.

Thanking you.

Hi @Julien Bedia ,

AP.request is used on the client side. On the backend(aka server side), you can access accountId using res.locals.userAccountId.

See below documentation for other "special context variables" stored in res.locals.
