How do you move a single user from one Crowd directory to another?

I have an install of Crowd 2.2.2 with two user directories. For this exercise let's call the directories OSI and GCI. I have a single user who is a member of the GCI directory. I need to move him to the OSI directory. Migrating all users from GCI into OSI is fairly simple but I can't find a way to move a single user from one to the other. So far my best idea is to export all GCI users to a CSV file, eliminate all but the single user I need and import the file. That seems a bit roundabout and likely to have unintended (bad) consequences. Is there a better way?

You could do this in the database

Basically the 3 tables you'll need to look at are cwd_user, cwd_group and cwd_membership

The easiest part is changing the user, you would simply change the directory_id field for that particular user in cwd_user

However, you also need to update that user's membership details which will involved making sure corresponding groups exist in the cwd_group table and updating the membership table to point to the new cwd_group id's and directory_id

Take a look at the schema, it's pretty easy to navigate

Score! That was it. Thanks, Colin.

This change needs to be restart JIRA is there a way to avoid that?
