Display user's email ID to a custom field.

Hi All,

We have a user picker custom field called "Test User" and want to display email id of this "Test User" to another field. So, please suggest the best way to do this.

Please let me know if need any additional info.

You'll need to do some coding for this - the email address of a user is not pulled into the html for any given page.  A simple derived field should do it (I'd use the scripted field functions in the script runner)

Bear in mind that you could be exposing personal information though, and you'll be bypassing the built in "only certain people can see other users email address" unless you code for it specifically.

Thanks for the reply. Can you please share some example?

I've not written code for that before, I just know I could if I tried, as I've done other stuff with user objects. What I could give you isn't going to get you very far - it really is "install script runner, write a scripted field that grabs another field value, reads a user from it and extracts their email address"
