JIRA finding users for a given directory

Hi all,

I have what I thought would be a very easy operation, but I am a little stuck.  We have 2 users directories:

  1. JIRA Internal
  2. LDAP

The JIRA internal should be just used for my administration and the like, but I just stumbled across a user who was internal.  So I need to find all users who are internal so I can get them to start using ldap ID instead.  I go to user and there is no directory filter.  Also I cannot click on the column title to sort by Directory.  

All I need is to find all users who are part of the JIRA internal directory.  Is there a way to do this?

(I did find this https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/migrating-users-between-user-directories-426116517.html on migrating users but I do not have the option Migrate users from one directory to another under User Directories)

Thanks in advance!

Only way I know of is to query the database directly.... something like this ought to do the trick:

SELECT * FROM cwd_user
WHERE directory_id = 1

Really? interacting directly with the database? Wow. I think I will submit that as a feature request as it seems very easy and I could really see the usage. Thanks! Robert

BTW that worked great. Thanks again.

Robert: did you find or submit a feature request for this?

No, I used Jordan's database query and that gave me what I needed.

Using the JIRA internal database is very dangerous.  I strongly recommend using a separate mysql database.   However here is how: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/running-sql-commands-in-a-hsql-database-685900390.html 

Something via the UI would be nice.

I found a macro on-line and modified it a little. It gets the KEY for the user directory. I haven't been able to get the name, but no biggie. Look at the user to see the actual user directory and learn what the two numbers mean. Here's the template:

## Macro title: Last Login
## Macro has a body: N
## Body processing: Selected body processing option
## Output: Selected output option

## Macro to display the last login date of users who have access to the current space

#set($containerManagerClass = $content.class.forName('com.atlassian.spring.container.ContainerManager'))
#set($getInstanceMethod = $containerManagerClass.getDeclaredMethod('getInstance',null))
#set($containerManager = $getInstanceMethod.invoke(null,null))
#set($containerContext = $containerManager.containerContext)
#set($loginManager = $containerContext.getComponent('loginManager'))
#set($users = $userAccessor.getUsers())

<table class="confluenceTable">
<th class="confluenceTh">Count</th>
<th class="confluenceTh">User</th>
<th class="confluenceTh">Login Name</th>
<th class="confluenceTh">Last Successful Login</th>
<th class="confluenceTh">Directory</th>

#set($count = 0)

#foreach($user in $users)
## list the last login date of users who can view the current space
#if ($permissionHelper.canView($user, $space))
#set($count = $count + 1)
<td class="confluenceTd">$count</td>
<td class="confluenceTd">#usernameLink($user.name)</td>
<td class="confluenceTd">$user.name</td>
<td class="confluenceTd">$action.dateFormatter.formatDateTime($loginManager.getLoginInfo($user.name).lastSuccessfulLoginDate)</td>
<td class="confluenceTd">$user.directoryId</td>

It worked for our Confluence server.

Can this functionality be added to the UI so that was can easily search users from a particular user directory (Internal, LDAP, Crowd)

I guess this is a no and we can't vote on it, since no one ever answered. It would make my life far easier to manage the 2000+ users we have.

Is there an update on this issue or do we still have to do this with SQL?

Submitted JRASERVER-65844 to add a filter on the "user management" screen.
