Class Overview

Represents a person who uses JIRA. This differs from a User, which represents a user in a user directory. An ApplicationUser encompasses all users with the same username (ignoring case) across all directories.

Note that the v6.0 version of this interface differs from the v5.x experimental version in one important regard: the v5.x version extended the User interface. Unfortunately, the two interfaces have incompatible contracts for equals, so they have been divided.

This incompatibility could lead, for example, to duplicate members in a Set if you were to mix the two implementations. Developers writing plugins that target JIRA 5.x should be careful not to mix ApplicationUser objects with other implementations of User; otherwise, unexpected results can occur (and it won't be compatible with 6.0).

If you want to access the mapping between user keys and usernames directly, use the UserKeyService.

Public Methods

public boolean equals (Object obj)

Implementations must ensure equality based on getKey().

Parameters

public long getDirectoryId ()

Returns
  • the ID of the user directory that this user comes from.

public User getDirectoryUser ()

Returns
  • the user as seen by the particular user directory that this User is defined in.

Returns the display name of the user. This is sometimes referred to as "full name".

Returns
  • display name of the user, must never be null.

public String getEmailAddress ()

Returns
