mail-address instead username from userfield in a query-result?

Hi @all,

i have a query like this:

im issues --fields=id,<userfield> --qeryDefinition=(bla bla bla...)

If i run this query i get a list which contains item-id and the username from the field <userfield>. But i need the mail-address which is linked to this user. Is it possible to see this mail-address instead of the username? Thanks,

kind regards, Jens

Re: mail-address instead username from userfield in a query-result?

You can take the userid and do a "im.exe viewuser" on it. This kind of thing works out great in powershell. Here's how that would look.

$users = (im.exe issues --fields=<userfield> --qeryDefinition=(bla bla bla...))

$emails=$users | foreach { im.exe viewuser $_ | findstr "Email Address" | foreach {$_.split(":").trim() }

...of course this just gets you a list of email addresses, like a bulk mail.

To find an individual user's email would be something like this:

$aUsersEmail = (im.exe viewuser $users[1] | findstr "Email Address" | foreach {$_.split(":").trim() )[0]

# where 1 is the number of the desired user in the array, which of course

# can be a variable derived by scanning the $users array for a desired name

# The [0] is there because the foreach output will be an array of one.

Hi David,

thanks, this should be a functional workaround. But it works only with at least two queries, which has to be in an external program or script. I was hoping about something like a parameter für showing userfield-entries in a query

kind regards, Jens
