Yes, I would expect that as soon as the user accounts do not longer exist in AD they are also deleted in Jira. This is only true if the user account is not related to any issues within Jira. If you do not like to delete user accounts in AD, you can also move them out of scope of the user directory synchronization either by moving them to a different OU or by an LDAP filter expression evaluating a defined criteria.
Yes because few of the users are inactive but few issues are assigned those inactive users.
So while taking back up if I ignore inactive users then I may loose the issues/data related to them?
So is there anyway to identify if any inactive user linked to any issues ?
I found this thread very helpful:
It discusses different approaches with and without the need for additional add-ons.
I’m used to Scriptrunner because I have it in all of my customers’ instances.
As I said before, from my experience the user directory synchronization does not delete users in case they are gone in the external directory as long as they are still related to issues in Jira.
I can verify this next week when I‘m back in the office.
Enjoy your weekend.
