we currently use Crowd to manage users that come from various directories, both internal crowd directories and external LDAP.
Now we have to move our main active directory to a new active directory, sadly with new usernames.
Would anyone have any suggestion on what's the best way to do such a migration?
Obviously all the content and history in the connected Jira and Confluence instances should be retained. At best our users shouldn't even notice the change, besides the new username.
As a possible solution to my own problem I found the following approach:
(probably do some synchronizations between these steps so that Jira and Confluence know of the new users)
Would this actually work and retain all the data?
That sounds very promising, so aliases would allow our users to still use their old usernames and retain all their data. This would be a good workaround for the meantime.
But from my understanding of the documentation this only adds an additional username that can be used for login and does not change any associated data, therefore not really "migrating" data to the new users, correct?
I would much prefer to cleanly move over all the data to the new usernames.
