I want to update th roles in many projects, my problem is that I need to add a different list of user to each project. I got the list already in excel file.
Is there an easy way to update the roles ? Something like updating a file ?
Even copy paste of user names doesn't seem to work.
I don't want to use groups for this as it differs for every project.
Using version 5.0.7
No, there's no easy way to do this (although pasting the user IDs, comma separated, should work). I wouldn't try to move to groups either - you've still got the problem that you'd need to get the groups populated from your spreadsheets.
I'd consider automating it with scripts. The most simple way is probably to use the Jelly runner.
It's very easy to take a spreadsheet list and write formula that converts your data from "user/project" to the block of Jelly required to "add user to role in project". Have a look at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA063/Jelly+Tags to get started, and when you've got the basic idea, head for the "add actors to project role" function.
The example I've got lying around for adding users to the (custom) role of "Tester" is below. This one adds the user who logs in as "mr.flibble" to the role (which has an id of 10001), in the project "PENGUIN"
