Connect Fisheye to JIRA internal crowd

Hi,

is it possible to connect Fisheye to JIRA built-in crowd?

I've been using the external crowd, but I'm wondering if that's necessary?

I'm not using LDAP nor any other external directory. I just had my users handled by crowd previously.

You can use your Jira internal crowd, they are essentially the same product. But I have to ask why? If you have an external Crowd which already works with Jira and Fisheye, then they share a SSO session, once a user is logged into one, they are logged into all. If you moved to Using Jira as your user server, you would lose this.

and to quote atlassian:

Please consider the following limitations when connecting to a JIRA server for user management:

  • Maximum 500 users.
  • Maximum 5 connected applications.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/User+Management+Limitations+and+Recommendations#UserManagementLimitationsandRecommendations-RecommendationsforConnectingtoAnotherJIRAServer

Atlassian's own check list says

If all the following are true:

  • You have fewer than 500 users.
  • You want to share user and group management across just a few applications, such as one JIRA server and one Confluence server, or two JIRA servers.
  • You do not need single sign-on (SSO) between JIRA and Confluence, or between two JIRA servers.
  • You do not have custom application connectors. Or, if you do have them, you are happy to convert them to use the new REST API.
  • You are happy to shut down all your servers when you need to upgrade JIRA.

Your environment meets the optimal requirements for using JIRA for user management.

So if you still want to do it, the next step is to import the user data.... trouble is there is no easy way of doing this. If you look at these questions & their answers

the options are either writing a Jelly script or using the Jira command line interface from Bob Swift.
