User search in Jira just got new features

As announced a few months ago in a post on our developer blog, we introduced a new API to search for users. Since then, we added a few features, including:

  • search for users who commented on issues
  • search for users who performed transitions on issues
  • search for users who are voters or watchers of issues
  • lightweight version of the API that returns user keys only

In addition to that, the ability to search for users who logged work on issues is coming soon.

We want to make this more useful so we’re still looking for feedback: what features would you like to see added around user search?
