Displaying the UID of a reporter in a custom field

In my env, the company uses uid obfuscation as a method of security. For an IT person who has to modify ACL's in other products that do not feature UID,CN lookups, its time consuming.

Since we use JIRA for our IT Requests, Id like to create a new custom field that gets populated at ticket creation, and its just the UID derived from the reporter.

Tried to find it in the answeres and knowledge base with little luck.

You can have a a post function on create transition to populate the field or write a script using ScriptRunner to generate UID value.
