When we migrate JIRA instance to a new server, In the new server do we need to create administrator account manually in the wizard ? We are not going to change the Database. Our database is in the separate instance.
There's no need for that as the users are stored in the DB, you can check the administrator accounts with the following query:
select M.child_name, SP.perm_parameter, SP.permission , U.directory_id
from schemepermissions SP, cwd_membership M, cwd_user U, cwd_directory D
where SP.permission in (44,0)
and SP.perm_parameter = M.parent_name
and U.user_name = M.child_name
and U.directory_id = D.id
and U.active = 1
and D.active = 1
Or all the users with a simple SELECT
SELECT * FROM cwd_user
If you don't hook JIRA into a clean database, all your configuration will be loaded from the database so there is no need to create an adm account manually.
The documentation below should help you to perform the migration:
