In our environment it's complicated to edit a currently active user directory in Jira/Conlfuence or Bitbucket:
It's not allowed to edit a User Directory thru which a Admin is logged in. We have to switch to a Admin from the Local user Directory (as our main directory is a our LDAP-based corporate user dir). But Login to that user is not that easy because we have a Single Signon Login Module in Front of Jira, i.e. we can't login with a technical admin user ...
Is there another way to change user directoy settings to change for example the URL of the LDAP-Server?
In JIRA 6.2.1, 7.0 and Confluence 5.5 all have these details in the table cwd_directory_attribute (MySQL):
select * from cwd_directory_attribute; # will show you all details.
I warmly recommend shutting down, doing a full db backup before updating any of these rows.
PS. This is a unsupported hack, but i am pretty sure just updating the fields that you need edited and restarting the applications will work.
