REST call as current user

Hello, my goal is to get all possible information about the current issue and send it by e-mail.

The only thing I came up with is getting it from REST (similar to the way it is done when calling webhook in the post function)
The code below gives me a json wich I can email.

But I dont like to store a user credentials in a script. Can I somehow execute that REST call with a currently logged in user? The way it is done when calling a webhook (I mean that when I call a webhook in a postfunction it done with a current user credentials).


import groovy.json.JsonSlurper

def user = "user"
def password = "passwd"
def urlConnection = new URL("").openConnection()
urlConnection.setRequestProperty("Authorization", "Basic " + (user + ":" + password).bytes.encodeBase64().toString())

def jsonString = IOUtils.toString(urlConnection.inputStream)

 Jira 6.2.4

ScriptRunner 3.0.16

There might be a way, but I don't know it.

But you could get all the information from a jira issue using the JAVA api.

You could start with something like this and refine the output as needed (for example, expand user type fields).

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor 
def cfm = ComponentAccessor.customFieldManager
def im = ComponentAccessor.issueManager
def issue = im.getIssueObject('JSP-1922')

def issueMap = [key:issue.key,, fields:[]]
issueMap.fields << [summary: issue.summary]
issueMap.fields << [description: issue.description]
issueMap.fields << [assignee: issue.assignee]
issueMap.fields << [reporter: issue.reporter]
issueMap.fields << [( : issue.getCustomFieldValue(it)]

Hello Peter,
Thank you for your help. Your suggestion will do the trick, and I think I'll stick to it for now because it's the best solution for now.


The only thing there is a little mistype at "def issueMap" "fields" should be a LinkedHashMap instead of ArrayList. :)

def issueMap = [key:issue.key,, fields:[:]]


Thank you :)

It wasn't a mistype... I just didn't look a the rest output structure close enough.

The array would work took, it just makes finding and accessing individual field items a little harder.

Clearly the map is better.
