User status not updating in user management

We have invited some employees of our company to our service desk to test everything before rolling jira out to all employees, but I have some problems with the user status.

All users hace received their invitation email, created their atlassian accounts and used the customer portal to create issues, but they still only show up as "invited" with their last activity set as the date of the invitation, while other accounts like mine show correctly as active.
None of the accounts (except for the 3 admins) have product access to either service management or jira administration, but can access the customer portal, could this be the cause of these issues? There is one account with no product access who still shows as active, so I have no idead what causes the problem.
All accounts have been created over a week ago, so it's not a syncronisation issue.

Here is a screenshot of the current status (it's in german but I hope you can still see the issue)

Hi Niklas,

I understand that you are looking at the administration section for Users in your Cloud site, but that these users are not updating within this view.

There was an improvement request for this over in however it was explained that this is expected behavior

The 'Invited' Status will not change to 'Active' until the user performs some specific tasks within a product, such as viewing or creating a Jira issue or Confluence page.

JSM complicates this to some degree though. Only licensed product users are expected to update these values on this administration page when they take some product specific action.  And all the users that only have access to the customer portal are unlicensed users.

You should still be able to see these users instead by going to htps://[yoursite]

This will redirect you to the domain where you can see/manage these portal only customers.  Try checking here, it should be able to provide to you the info I think you are looking for here.
