Hi Quan,

There is a knowledge base article titled How to Get a List of Active Users Counting Towards the JIRA application License that can help you achieve what you're looking for.  This will get a list of users counting towards the JIRA Software license:

SELECT DISTINCT u.lower_user_name
FROM   cwd_user u
       JOIN cwd_membership m
         ON = m.child_id
            AND u.directory_id = m.directory_id
       JOIN licenserolesgroup lrg
         ON Lower(m.parent_name) = Lower(lrg.group_id)
       JOIN cwd_directory d
         ON m.directory_id =
WHERE = '1'
       AND = '1'
 AND license_role_name = 'jira-software';

The article has queries for Service Desk and Core as well.
