Get JIRA username from email

I'm trying to write a groovy script that will get the username of a user given the specified email. Here's what I have:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.bc.user.search.UserSearchService

def userSearchService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserSearchService)
def user = userSearchService.findUsersByEmail("joe.user@mycompany.com")

How can I pull the the username out of the "user" object? If I do:

String user_key = user.first()
log.info user_key

It'll print out in the log: "joe.user(juser)" but I gotta think there's a better way to pull that info than breaking apart that string.

Hello Chris.

As you can see here(the official atlassian documenation), the function getUsersByEmail returns an array of <ApplicationUsers>. 

In the link you will find that if you have a variable ApplicationUser. You can simply call the method .getName()

Hope that you found this useful. If you need anymore help don't hessitate to ask.

Cheers

Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. Just had to add:

ApplicationUser my_user = user[0]

log.info "The username is: " + my_user.getName()
