You can use add-on Active Directory Integration. It's very easy to use. You can choose user's attributes, get all selected values from AD and use it in JIRA. You can get values from more than one AD or ldap servers.

This add-on has more possibilities. You can see documentation:

You should add Jira user properties from AD. I created a perl script which runs every night and updates Jira user properties in DB from AD.

I use this SQL to get list of users which have have missing user property:





where not in







where and and



Then cycle those users, get value for each with $ldap->search

Then write found values to Jira DB:

INSERT INTO propertystring (id,propertyvalue) VALUES (\@newID, \"$UserCustomID\");";

And update sequence after that:

UPDATE SEQUENCE_VALUE_ITEM SET SEQ_ID=(SELECT (((max(id)+20) div 100)+1)*100 from propertyentry) where SEQ_NAME=\"OSPropertyEntry\";";
