Hi Sonika,

I am not sure if you can get all users from JIRA rest api, but surely you can search user by username, email id or text from below query

If you are running this directory in browser then make sure you are logged in to JIRA before running this.

You will get Empty value also if there is no user with that email id or name.

I have tested using CURL and running in browser both are working

curl -u testjira:testjira

Hi, Sonica.

About getting all the users, this should give you some information:

It is possible to get the list all users (may be with in the limit of maximum returnable results). We need to use the search API.

The wildcard character to be used for this purpose is "%".





Both requests give me active users only. How about all users?

what if users are more than 1000 ?Is it working if startAt=1000 and maxResults=2000?

It's not working for me.

Try ...username=.   (dot)
