I'm having a very large Confluence installation, where one very large group (say group A) is synchronized from LDAP. We now have a second group (say group B) that has the same users in LDAP and is synchronized with Confluence as well. We are now searching for the best way to change all permissions in Confluence associated with group A to group B. Afterwards, we aim to delete group A in LDAP. This is essentially a way to rename the group A to B.
Thank you very much in advance for any hints!
I do not understand. The answer marked as solution says I should run this SQL:
Update cwd_group set group_name='<new_group_name>', lower_group_name='<new_group_name>' where lower_group_name='<old_group_name>';
However, this won't touch any permissions in the CONTENT_PERM and SPACEPERMISSIONS tables. So these will still point to the old group. Or am I missing something? Actually I do not really want to "rename" a group. I want to change all group permissions of one group to another.
You might be able to do this in a better fashin than with SQL. The official API's can do this kind of thing. I qwould recommend looking into the Confluence Command Line Interface as it implements those API's in an easy to use fashion.
