I want to delete a Jira user who is no longer with the team because his username is taking up one of my FishEye licenses. However I can't delete the user when he has assigned issues, even though they are closed.
So I want to change the assignee of those closed issues to another person. Can I do this w/o re-opening the issues (I am looking at about 50 total issues)? Or is there another way I can delete the user
Create a single username for all the terminated users 'termuser'
Create a filter with closed issues assigned to the user (who left) and do a bulk Transition of issues to a new status by choosing 'Do not send emails'.
Now bulk edit all the issues and change the assignee to 'termuser' and select 'Do not send emails'
Transition all the issues to closed status.
