Import Users From Ldap to Jira's Local Groups


I would add some ldap users to a group.

How could I do this?

I plan on doing a personalized service that connects to LDAP, request a parameter necessary to bring users and then add them to a specific group through the jira api.

But as a tour service does not seem the best way to implement this.

Is there another alternative from JIRA to run this program?

Thank you very much.

Hi Antonio,

I believe you will find that this document explains the various possibilities you have for importing your LDAP user data into JIRA's local directories:

All the best,

Thank you very much John,

but the idea is that users are not created in JIRA but are the LDAP and may be assigned to local groups with a program automatically. So when do login may be in the corresponding group.

Hi John.

I'm a teammate of Antonio. We have the following requirement: Each user can only access to one project in Jira. Which project can be accessed by the user will be determined by the value of the user's company field in the LDAP directory. Because of we could have several hundreds of users for each company, we have thought that it could be possible to write a simple Java program that making use of the Jira API would create the users from the list of users retrieved with a simple LDIF query.

We don't want to use the Jira Internal Directory because several properties of the user profile such as email, name of the user, password, etc. shouldn't be modified by the user.

Please, do you know how can this be achieved?
