The following query will give you a list of projects, the roles within that project, and the users assigned to that role.

This was written in MySQL syntax, so you may need to tweak it depending on the database you are using

This was written for JIRA schemas above v6.0

SELECT p.pname, pr.NAME, u.display_name 
FROM projectroleactor pra
INNER JOIN projectrole pr ON pr.ID = pra.PROJECTROLEID
INNER JOIN project p ON p.ID = pra.PID
INNER JOIN app_user au ON au.user_key = pra.ROLETYPEPARAMETER
INNER JOIN cwd_user u ON u.lower_user_name = au.lower_user_name;

(warning) This is a pretty basic query, so you will probably have to alter it a bit to get the exact results you want. For example, you can add some criteria to limit the results by Project (where p.pname = "My Project") or by role (pr.NAME = "Developers")


// List of users belonging to groups assigned to project roles for all projects
SELECT p.pname as ProjN, pr.NAME as roleN, pra.roletype, pra.roletypeparameter, cmem.child_name, u.display_name
FROM projectroleactor pra
INNER JOIN projectrole pr ON pr.ID = pra.PROJECTROLEID
INNER JOIN project p ON p.ID = pra.PID
INNER JOIN cwd_membership cmem ON cmem.parent_name = pra.roletypeparameter
INNER JOIN app_user au ON au.lower_user_name = cmem.child_name
INNER JOIN cwd_user u ON u.lower_user_name = au.lower_user_name
WHERE pra.roletype = 'atlassian-group-role-actor' order by p.pname;
