How to Get Owner of Current Dashboard in Jira

Mengna Du Jul 21, 2013


I am developing a standalone gadget for JIRA with HTML and JavaScript. In which I wish to use json to get the username of current dashboard via REST API to realize the authorization.

I am figuring out how to get this attribute via REST api but after my looking up for several documentations I could not find it....Is there anyway could realize that function?

Thank you so much!

The gadget itself has an option to OAuth itself to JIRA (

<Require feature="oauthpopup" />

Hi Timothy,

I know the OAuth technology but mine is a standalone one in which I did not use the JIRA framework... Therefore this option does not apply in my case...

If that's the case, i doubt that you can get the username. You could try to read off the <head> tag. There is a <meta> tag with username.

&lt;meta name="ajs-remote-user" content="xxx"&gt;

Hi! I have found the attribute you mentioned. But what I need is the dashboard owner which could not be found....

Also, I have found there is corresponding JIRA API in Java to access the dashboard owner name. But I am still figuring out how to integrate plugin in Java and Gadget in Java-Script....Do you have any idea about that?

Here are the reference links:

Thank you so much!
