There's no easy way to get the group list out of JIRA.  (Well, for a short list of groups, copy and paste it out of the group maintenance screen)

For a longer list, reading the database out to a text file probably is quicker and easier.  But NEVER write to a JIRA database.  Only read.

For the group list - select * from cwd_group

The next logical question I can sense coming is "who is in groups" - select * from cwd_membership for that one.

Just figured this out after putting together a few separate posts. This was done in a postgres db and Jira Server.

Through using the API you can get project role information for groups

"/rest/api/2/project/{Project Key/ID}/role/{Role ID}"

Doing that shows you the type for groups in projects, which is:


"id":12345,"displayName":"Group Name","type":"atlassian-group-role-actor","name":"Group Name"

This can be leveraged in the database doing a query of the "ProjectRoleActor" table that shows information on what users and groups exist in each project role. Since we want just the groups, the following query will work:

select * from projectroleactor where roletype='atlassian-group-role-actor'

If you want to export to CSV, add a few details:

copy (select * from projectroleactor where roletype='atlassian-group-role-actor') to '/output path/jiragroups.csv' with csv;
