Configuring Delegated Authentication Directory created by Jira 4.3 upgrade

Prior to Jira 4.3 we were using LDAP authentication configured via osuser.xml. During the 4.3 upgrade, Jira created a Delegated Authentication Directory, but the User Directories page doesn't allow its configuration to be edited.

We need to edit the configuration to change the LDAP host, because we are about to decommission the old LDAP system.

How do we configure this directory ?

Hi Robin,

In order to edit the directory you will need to access JIRA using an administrative user that registered under a different directory, for example and adminsitrative user that belong to "Internal Directory" as describe here:

Please refer to this documentation to retrieve your administrator if necessary. Hope it helps.
