JIRA Version: 7.2.6
I want to add a group "ABC" and delete a group "XYZ" from the user roles in Project roles, of all the projects.
Since there are over 250 projects and every project has XYZ added as a group in project roles, I can't manually go in each project and delete that group and replace it with ABC.
How can I do it with some automation?
I was able to solve this with REST calls.
I made a rest call and got all the projects.
From that I retrieved all the project ids.
Then I traversed through all the IDs, and made POST and DELETE requests for adding and deleting groups alternatively.
Following are the rest calls:
1. For getting all the projects
2. For Adding group.
3. For Deleting group.
Might be kind of a wonky solution, but would this work for you?
I can't tell if ABC is a brand new group you're creating or an existing one, but if it's a brand new group, I guess you could just use the existing XYZ group if none of the existing members in XYZ need access to those 250+ projects anymore.
Also, I don't think you can change the name of a user group in JIRA once it's created, so you'd be stuck with "XYZ" - not sure if that would be an issue for you.
Thought I'd throw that our there, at least. Other than this, I can't think of anything that Nic didn't already say.
