Can I know the SQL Query to delete all the users not mapped to any group in Jira?



Can I know a SQL Query to delete the users in JIRA not mapped to any groups of any project except for jira-users?We need to get the estimate of all the active JIRA Project users and delete the inactive users(i.e;users not mapped to any groups of the Project).

Thanks in Advance.

You will break your JIRA if you do this, and even though I could tell you some of the places to look, I would probably miss some of them.  

You cannot remove users who have created, commented or are assigned issues, if you do that, JIRA WILL fall over.  You should deactivate these users.

PLEASE, please, please, use the UI to do this.  It will stop you from crippling your system.  Or Jelly or scripting or whatever, but do NOT use SQL.

Thanks for the answer.It was useful. smile
