It's a combination of

external_entities on (user_name = external_entities.name)

propertyentry on (external_entities.id = propertyentry .entity_id)

propertystring on (propertyentry .id = propertystring .id)


propertyentry.entity_name = 'ExternalEntity'

propertyentry.property_key = 'jira.meta.xxx'

xxx is the property name and propertystring.propertyvalue is the value


It looks like propertyentry.entity_id does not relate to external_entities.id any more, does it?

Well, in JIRA 6 one shall use app_user instead of external_entities

For JIRA 6, it is changed


s.propertyvalue as FieldValue
app_user e 
JOIN propertyentry t
e.ID = t.entity_id
JOIN propertystring s
t.ID = s.ID
where t.property_key like 'jira.meta%';

Thank you very much :)

Thank you for this.

You can retrive property by programatically in future, you can use below code.

PropertySet properties;


String x=properties.getString("jira.meta.x");

  propertystring ps,
  external_entities ee,
  propertyentry pe
  ee.name(+) = '<USERNAME HERE>' and
  pe.property_key(+) = 'jira.meta.' || '<PROPERTY KEY HERE>' and
  ee.entitytype(+) = 'com.atlassian.jira.user.OfbizExternalEntityStore' and
  ee.id = pe.entity_id(+) and
  pe.id = ps.id(+);
