Bulk User Deactivation in Jira from jira-users group

Dear All,

We have the script runner add-on in our JIRA instance and we are planning to use the plugin for bulk deactivation of users in JIRA. The script is as shown in the link below


The script has worked perfectly in our test environment.

But we have noticed that our Confluence system uses "JIRA Server" as the User Directory. that is users who are deactivated in JIRA (after running the script) will not be able to access confluence as well.  Is there a way to modify the code so that it can fetch users from "jira-users" group  and look for last login and deactivate the inactive users, instead of fetching all users and deactivating them.  Kindly advise. Thanks

Looking at the code from the link there is this line which does the fetching of all users from JIRA:

userUtil.getUsers().findAll{it.isActive()}.each {

<deactivation code>



userUtil.getUsers().findAll{it.isActive()}.each {


userUtil.getUsersInGroupNames(["Group1","Group2"]).findAll{it.isActive()}.each {

This should only pull the users from the particular groups you want to target.
