JIRA Cloud - Get account ID for user


Recommended Posts

Atlassian have been changing there API to tighten up security and data protection, so when using the existing methods to 'Add Watcher' or specify the 'Reporter'  on the 'Create Issue' you are no longer able to provide the clear text username or email address.

Therefore can we request and additional method to allow us to obtain the accountID by passing in a textual username.

The api allows multiple lookups, but we would just want to query singular at the moment as part of getting the Atlassian accountID of the current user in Hornbill.

Cheers

Martyn
