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.

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.
