According to the Jira Cloud REST API documentation,
locale fields in the response of the “/rest/api/3/myself” endpoint can be null depending on the user’s privacy setting. However, when I change the time zone’s visibility to “only you” in my profile, the
timeZone in the response of the REST endpoint becomes Jira’s default timeZone. I could not find the privacy setting for
locale and it is always returned as the user’s locale.
When do these two fields (
locale) become null for the “/rest/api/3/myself” endpoint?
