Is is possible to copy a user directory configuration from one instance of JIRA to another?

We are using LDAP authentication. Unfortunately for me the particular IT person who knew how to set that up has left the company. I have a second instance of JIRA in which I want to implement the same user authentication and I was hoping there is a configuration file I can just copy from one directory to another...?

JIRA 5.0

Thanks a million,

Hi David,

In JIRA 5.0 all the configuration is stored on the database and there are no configuration file in regards to user management. You need to mirrorred the same configuration configured on "User Directories".

Hope it helps.
