Is it possible to Migrate user groups from 1 directory to another?


We currently have 2 directories under confluence (Confluence-Internal and Work-Internal). We are using Oracle db.

We plan to move the Work-Internal Directory up and make it the primary one. Since there are common users in both directories, we need to transfer the groups the users are a part of from the Confluence-Internal to the Work-Internal Directory.

Is there any way we could achieve this for Oracle db?

You can user userAccessor API

Group gp = userAccessor.getGroup("confluence-users");

User addUser = userAccessor.getUser(employeeString);

if(null != addUser)


userAccessor.addMembership(gp, addUser);


Thanks :)

Do we need to specify any admin access for to script to run successfully?


User adminuser = userAccessor.getUser("xxxxx");//any admin user from confluence-admin

Are there any Confluence apis that we could use to change a user's group?

Do you want to add/remove people from groups?

Yes, I want to add people to groups. I need to add 1100+ people a particular group, and I am hoping there is an api which will make my task easier.
