I'm fairly new the Jira universe and loving it. Let me get straight to my questions
Any recommendation and directions would be much appreciated.
Great to hear you are enjoying the JIRA Experience :)
Lots of questions here so let me try and break it down. I also highly recommend
- performing each operation as a discrete activity
- performing each operation on a test/staging environment, then implementing changes on the production instance
1. Migrate your database
Depending on the size of your instance, you should be able to use the XML backup and restore functionality to migrate your SQL database to Postgres. Refer to docs at https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/switching-databases-802592192.html
2. Run JIRA behind a Proxy Server
You can choose Apache or IIS or any web-server of your choice. Refer to the docs at https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/running-jira-applications-over-ssl-or-https-861253906.html
3. Run JIRA over SSL
4. Connect to a user directory
If you are using a Data Center instance, and have an identity management platform, you can use SAML authentication. You can also connect your JIRA directly to an AD server, or use Atlassian Crowd as the user management platform. Few choices here so invest some time to decide what best works for you longer term. Refer to https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver071/connecting-to-an-ldap-directory-802592350.html
Hope that helps
