Search_users() in JIRA python API not working


So we have been using the JIRA python package, which provides for a function ‘search_users()’ inside a class JIRA. The first parameter of this function is ‘user’ which we used to pass as a null string ‘’, and this used to return all users. But since yesterday, it is throwing an error -

“text: The username or property query parameter must be provided”

and when I do pass a value for user, it throws another error=

“The query parameter ‘username’ is not supported in GDPR strict mode.”

I get it that they’ve disabled username in APIs due to GDPR, but I am unable to find the updated python package to support the same, as the current package (V 2.0.0) still uses the old way to get users.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
