Importing data resource question

Steve Park Apr 19, 2019

I am importing older Jira data into Jira Cloud.  Many of the resources (for assignee and reporter) are no longer here.  Is there a way to import in the data without having to create accounts for the resources?  I also don't want to pay for accounts for these resources that are no longer here.

Hello!

If you use the Jira Import feature, then while creating new users you can check the option to deactivate users.

I believe I need to add email addresses to create accounts.  These resources are no longer here.  Do I add dummy emails and then deactive the users after load?

You can do it like this as well.
