How do I add all users from Jira to a specific group?

The solution has to work with ancient Jira, like 3.10.x !

If you browse to the instance admin panel, they select the group. There will be a link named "Edit Members" if you press it you will see a small image/icon of 3 figures (the user browser pop-up) in order to press this you will need to have the "Browse Users" permission.

The user pop-up gives you the option to select all the users you want and add them at once.

Does this works even if I have 2000 users?

It worked with 900 users, doing it in batches of 100 :p

Hi sorin,

You can use Jelly Scripts to automate this by creating a special script.

There is a tag named "AddUserToGroup" that you can use for that. More information you can find here:

I hope that will help you.

Regards,

Mirek
