How to find the location of the jira user

Hi all,

How can i find the location of the JIRA user in our JIRA application. In our JIRA the users come from the LDAP directory. Time zone is showing default for all users, but i cannot find the location of the JIRA user.

Thanks,

Patina

The standard LDAP connection only pulls in the data that JIRA needs (name, email, password verification, and timezone).  So the short answer is that you can't, without coding something to fetch it from LDAP.

Thanks you Nic for quick reply

Hi Nic, And one more thing is, We are maintaining crowd and all users are coming form LDAP to the crowd. And we integrated jira with crowd, so all the users in the jira coming form crowd. As you said we cannot find the location of the user in the jira. This is clear to me. But is any way to get the location in crowd with API? Thanks, Rambabu

I think you'd need to extend the LDAP connector in Crowd, as implied by https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/LDAP+Object+Structures
