User locale delivered via Forge context is browser based, not Atlassian profile based

Hi there,

we are trying to establish internationalization within our Forge apps and are happy to see that the user locale is part of the Forge context for a while now. However, we noticed that this user locale refers exclusively to the language set in the browser and not to the language set in the Atlassian profile. But, since all other interfaces in Atlassian applications follow the Atlassian profile language, we wonder if this is intentional or a mistake at this point.

Best regards,


I cannot speak for Atlassian about their design choice, but the workaround is to grab it from REST API.
