scriptrunner cloud currentuser


I'm using  the cloud versions of JIRA Service desk and Software and want to use the current user as reporter for clone which I'm creating with Scriptrunner. How do I get the current logged in user. It should be so easy, but I googled around and cannot come up with an answer.

Hi Rudy,

In the additionalCode of the Clone Issue post function you'll need this code:

def response = get('/rest/api/2/myself').asObject(Map)
assert response.status == 200

def currentUsername =
issueInput.fields.reporter = [name: currentUsername] as Map

Here's a screenshot too:


I hope that helps, Jon

Thanks @Jon Bevan [Adaptavist], that is not what I expected, but sure works! It is quite a change going from scriptrunner server to cloud!
