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.

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.

I think you'd need to extend the LDAP connector in Crowd, as implied by
