    Jive rest API 3.11: get value of jive_label Biography from persons profile




      after an update to jiveVersion, the Biography in a persons profile is not provided in the json response anymore.


      Example json response after update:

        "jive" : {

          "enabled" : true,

          "external" : false,

          "federated" : true,

          "lastProfileUpdate" : "2016-01-19T07:04:13.758+0000",

          "locale" : "en",

          "externalContributor" : false,

          "sendable" : true,

          "timeZone" : "GB",

          "username" : "test",

          "visible" : true



      In a previous version we were able to get the 'Biography' within profile as follows:

      Example json response before update:
