I'm writing a JIRA plugin which needs to present a list of Users to an Admin user. I'm using UserManager to check that the admin user has logged in but the UserManager appears to only have methods for a single user.

I came up with the (dot) trick on my own and I can use the REST API if I paste the url into a browser after I have logged into JIRA.
