Access to assignee email in jira app

Hello folks,

Hi developing jira app using the forge framework. To identify users in my application I  want to access the assignee email address.   I am listening to avi:jira:updated:issue which just account id. I even tried calling jira account id api but that also doesn't provide email even though I have mentioned read:jira-user scope in permission. Below is snippet of my app code. Please let me how I can I get users email.


export async function run(event, context) {
let assignee = event.issue.fields.assignee.accountId;
let issueId = event.issue.key;

const res = await api

const accData = await res.json();
const payload = {event: event, email:}

const response = await api.fetch('', {
method: 'post',
body: JSON.stringify(payload),
headers: {'Content-Type': 'application/json'}
const data = await response.json();
