Merge migrated project roles and permissions

After migration, we see some of the project roles have its original and migrated versions on the target cloud side. e.g. Administrators, Administrators (migrated 2), Administrators (migrated).

As a cleanup activity, we need to merge the migrated versions of any particular project role into a single role. e.g. There are three versions of Administrators project roles as above and we want those to be merged into a single project role called Administrators.

Can we achieve this? If yes, what is the simplest and less-risky way for this?

Alternatively, is there a way (e.g. using ScriptRunner) to assign a project role to loads of permission schemes as a bulk operation?

I know that there is a script runner post function to assign roles so I would assume that you could create a script that you just run to perform the assignment.  You would have to review their documentation to confirm.

@ushankar Welcome to the Atlassian Community

Unfortunately, there is not a great way to clean these up and Atlassian had a feature request here with some information about the issue.

Next time you migrate take a look at this and it should help you out but might not fix the outcome depending on how your server instance is configured.
