Availability of Merging User IDs

We are upgrading JIRA from 4.3 and currently downloading the upgrades to our current modules we have installed. This module used to have the merge ID's and now, when we install this module, it no longer has this service. Am I missing something?

Yes. I see that the functionality for changing user ID's is in JIRA version 6.4, but I have yet to find the merge function in either JIRA 6.4 or this updated version of the Groovy Script Runner.

Did you manage to merge users on 6.4?

No. I have not. It doesn't seem like it can happen. If you rename users that already exist, it will error and say that it can't do it. You can disable them, but that doesn't reassign any issue or filters or dashboards into the correct ID for the person.
