separate confluence from jira

In our company we have a 10 users JIRA license working in connection with a 10 users confluence license. Until now we have both applications connected, which allows users to use both of them with the same login.

we want to upgrade our JIRA to a 100 users license and keep confluence running with only 10 users.

I installed JIRA and Confluence on a new server now, to prepare the migration, but when I import confluence xml data, I still have confluence users belonging to jira-users groups.

how can I separate both applications?

thank you in advance

Thank you Roman for your answer.

I reconfigured my user directories, so I deleted the Remote JIRA Directory, which deleted all the users who belonged to this directory, and when I created a new user in the Confluence Internal Directory, he has no rights for anything on confluence, even though he belongs to the group confluence-users and this group has all the rights applied.

my questio is, is there a way to keep the users who belonged to Remote JIRA Directory and assign them simply to Confluence Internal Directory before I delete the Remote JIRA Directory?

Thank you

There is a guide from Atlassian. Be careful, you need to be pretty familiar with your database to do that.

Thank you so much. It solved my problem.

You can keep using JIRA as the user server for your Confluence instance. Use separate groups (like confluence-users and jira-users) to restrict Confluence and JIRA access. See details here and here.

If you still need to separate JIRA from Confluence you should reconfigure your user directories settings for Confluence to use the internal directory.
