We have been using Crowd with an internal directory of users for SSO between JIRA, Confluence, Stash and Bamboo for the last few years.
We are now migrating over to using Microsoft Active Directory as our primary directory on Crowd. I have set up a stage environment to test, and have successfully created a new Microsoft Active Directory directory and imported all the relevant user and groups.
However the problem is that everyone will get new account for our applications as this is a new directory. Is it possible to either disable all the accounts in our old Crowd Internal Directory and link them to the new account in the Microsoft Active Directory? Or to merge the directory/accounts?
The end goal is that people who previously had an account in the Crowd internal directory would still be able to see all thier previous history/issues in JIRA/Confluence etc when we migrate over to the MS Active Directory.
Thanks in advance.
As long as the user name matches, you can just put the AD user directory on top of the internal user directory and everything should work fine.
Keep an eye on the permissions as the user groups will have to be either created in AD or aggregated from both directories.
