Standard response:  Do not bother trying to read a JIRA database, it is a data storage system, and is not designed for any form of reporting.  SQL is absolutley the worst way to get any information out of a JIRA system, and there is a better way to do what you're trying to do.

But, if you must do it the wrong way,

  • read jiraissue for the reporter field
  • use what you find in there to read cwd_user


great! i found it. thanks!
