You need to invoke the REST API to get additional user details. This post has some code: http://www.j-tricks.com/1/post/2012/02/some-ajs-tricks.html

Thanks - I will check this out

can i add it directly in the java script or do i have to do any additonal settings?

When I add it as below - it returns undefiend values in the summary field.

<script type="text/javascript">

var reporter = getCurrentUserName() ;

if (document.getElementById("summary").value == "") {

document.getElementById("summary").value = reporter;

}

function getCurrentUserName()

{

var user;

AJS.$.ajax({

url: "/rest/gadget/1.0/currentUser",

type: 'get',

dataType: 'json',

async: false,

success: function(data) {

user = data.username;

}

});

return user;

}

</script>

function getCurrentUserName()
{
var user;
AJS.$.ajax({
url: "/rest/gadget/1.0/currentUser",
type: 'get',
dataType: 'json',
async: false,
success: function(data) {
user = data.username;
}
});
return user;
}

What version of JIRA is it? Yes, you can add it in in javascript. Also, can you alert the username alone?

What exactly is undefined?

you can get full name using

jQuery('#header-details-user-fullname').html();
