I have Jira Command Line client installed on my Ubuntu linux system. I am running a script which reads users from a file and then add each user to a particular grp. my script goes like this:
while read -r user
./jira.sh --action addUserToGroup --userId "$user" --group "group1"
done < users.txt
where I have a text file "users.txt" containing about 2872 users. The scipt is running fine, except for the fact it is taking a lot of time. It is taking almost 1.5 minute to add a single user o the group. so, if we talk about 2872 users it will need about 30 hrs. so, wanted to ask that is there a poblem with my scrip that it is taking to long or is it ok for the script to take this much of a time.
From an efficiency and ease of use perspective, I would recommend using runFromCsv . For that you will need to add a userId column header as the first row of the file and then something like the following will work directly:
jira --action runFromCsv --common "--action addUserToGroup --group \"group1\" "
Of course it could still be slow if JIRA is taking a lot of time to add the user to the group. However, this is more efficient from a CLI perspective.
How to use runFromCsv has more information.
