How to move user(s) to another directory ?

Hello !

After changing some usernames to the login stored in our LDAP for these Jira users, I need to move these users to the "Internal with LDAP Authentication User Directory" to force the control of their password by LDAP.

Groovy plugin has a script to change username but it seems it doesn't have a such one to move user to another directory.

So I've tried to do it directly in the database by changing the value of the columns named "directory_id" in tables cwd_user and cwd_membersihp but when I show the list of the users in Jira, they are still all in the "JIRA Internal Directory" !

JIRA currently supports migrating of users from Internal Directory to Internal With LDAP and vice versa. Check the directory configuration administration page. Does that help?
