After migration, copy/add (old) JIRA Groups /roles

I am migrating from the cloud. After that, all group memberships are lost - as stated in


Is there a script (bash or scriptrunner or similar) or a plugin/tool to overcome this as in:


1. After migration, save all usernames with group memberships.

2. Add AD as first Directory

3. Reapply all group membership to the user again (now the AD user).


Any caveats?






PS: This is highly critical - any comments / answers would certainly be appriciated.
