How can a Jelly script retrieve a property value from the User

I have a Jelly script that uses the following to retrieve a User assigned to an issue:


<core:invokestatic classname="com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor" method="getUserUtil" var="userUtil/">


I then use the object to get the email address and name of the user:


${} $


I would also like to access some of the properties I have created - I cannot determine what method to call on the instantiated object which is : com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.ofbiz.OfBizUser

How can I access the properties for a User

Hi John,
As per our support issue you have found the answer. I'll just be making this public for our other users out there:

Note the key requires the prefix "jira.meta."

Personally I feel that using our REST API for this may be simpler, you would only need to get the assignee of the issue and then query the user.


Hi Michael,

I wanted to use Jelly scripting service hence why I implemented it this way.
