How to get current Username login in session on jira 5.2?

Hi All,

In "jira 4.3" I get current username login in session with code jsp follow:

<%@page import="com.opensymphony.user.User" %>


User _user=null;

String _fullName="";

if (session.getAttribute("seraph_defaultauthenticator_user")!=null){




package "com.opensymphony.user" in file: "jira-api-4.3.4.jar"

But the code jsp above is not working on jira 5.2.

System show error: not found package: com.opensymphony.user.User.

And I not find package "com.opensymphony.user" in file "jira-api-".

You can help me get current username login from code jsp and run on jira 5.2 ?

Thanks you very much !

OpenSymphony User handling was replaced with embedded crowd from Jira 4.3

I don't know if that is exposed in the session in the same way, but if it is, it would be a bit like om.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User

Thanks Jobin Kuruvilla and Nic Brough.

I will try with guide from you.

Thanks you very much !
