How to easily get userKey for user

Hana Kučerová Community Leader Dec 20, 2020

Hello Community,

please, is there some easy way for Jira administrator how to obtain userKey (~ JIRAUSER12345) for some specific user?

I'm aware, that I can get this information:

  • using REST API
  • looking into the database
  • using some groovy script
  • ...

But I wasn't able to find any straightforward way like get it from User management, click somewhere, use some URL. Am I missing something?

Thank you very much.

Hi @Soumyadeep Mandal ,

so, according to the issue JRASERVER-68189, there is no Jira's UI way.

Probably the easist way is to use REST API and URL:

  • $JIRA_URL/rest/api/2/user?username=<User_Name>

Thank you for the confirmation, I thought I'm missing something.

Go to Script Console in ScriptRunner and type in Script:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor; 

Remember to change username

Click Run
