Change user account for structure synchronizer

I would like to transition the account used to set up our structure synchronizer to a service account. That way if I leave the organization, the sync will still work. How do I do this?

Hi Scott,

We'll add the ability to change synchronizer owner in one of the future versions, likely in Structure 2.7.

Meanwhile, there's a hack that involves using Script Runner plugin. If you're keen to try that, install Script Runner and execute the following Groovy script.

It's recommended to run the script during a quiet time, when there are no changes that the synchronizer could process. Alternatively, disable the synchronizer, run the script, then resync and enable again.

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager 
def plugin = ComponentManager.getInstance().getPluginAccessor().getPlugin('com.almworks.jira.structure')
def syncManager = plugin.getModuleDescriptor('sync-manager').getModule()
def synchronizer = syncManager.getInstalledSynchronizer(3) // 3 is the synchronizer ID
synchronizer.myDefinition.setUserKey('tom') // tom is the new owner userkey
return 'ok’

Hope this helps!

That's what we needed. Thank you

Hi Igor


I ran into the same problems as ScottW. I tried your querry with scriptrunner but it doesn't worked. Can you help me with another solution? Structure version 3.3.3.jira7
