I need to move the Confluence server and it will not be able to reach the JIRA server anymore. So I need a way to migrate user from Remote JIRA Directory to Confluence Internal Directory :)
I'm able to run SQL query to retrieve user list and group from database.
But there is not rest API call to create user in Confluence ...
Does anyone know a good way to achieve this ?
If a user with the same username exists in the local and external user directory, they will be merged. So in your case, you can create a user manually with the same username in the local directory and that user will have the same content access as remote Jira user.
To do that you have to make sure you have a working local administrator account too, to avoid losing access when Jira External Directory is no longer reachable:
Now you should have the same user in both directories and if you ever lose access to Jira or remove it, local user will remain.
Thanks for the reply here - great topic! I do wonder though, in your step #8, why do that step if the goal is to no longer use the remote Jira directory?
Also, at what point does Confluence associate the end users' associated Confluence data (pages,comments, perms, etc.) with that new user entry in the Internal Directory. Does it update Confleunce's own DB at the next login, or on restart?
