How to import users from Crowd to JIRA?

Okay, so I have a very small JIRA/Confluence set up for a small team. We have no more than 30 users. I have Crowd set up, but I'm quickly realizing that it's not necessary for such a small scale operation. I'd like to migrate it back to JIRA so that I don't have to keep Crowd running and using precious RAM. Is it possible to go "backwards" like this, and move back to JIRA User Server from Crowd? I'd really like to do this if possible. I'm willing to use hacky methods to do it too, as long as it's not too complicated.

Do you have the users in JIRA/Confluence previously before configuring them to connect to Crowd? If yes, you can easily disable the External User Directory configured in JIRA/Confluence to have it use back the Internal Directory.

However, if the Internal Directory is empty, you can choose to recreate all the users in the Internal Directory. There are less than 30 users, I guess it should be possible. Moreover, found a documentation on reverting from Crowd to Internal Confluence Directory.

Cannot find the above link.
