Jira user list.

Is there a way to create a printable list of all the users in my JIRA database? There are a number of users that have left the company and I want to do cleanup.

Easiest way IMHO go to database backend fire a sql query take the results in csv and print.

yes mysql database in your case.

would you happen to know the table name that I need to query?

is the DB you are refering to the "jiradb"? that I created in mysql. (may be different for you)

thanks. I'll try to figure it out and only bug you if I get stuck. :)

Ok. I'm back. I tried to do a select on the table CWD_USER but there was nothing in there. Though I did find user data in userbase. Is that a valid table?

select * from userbase;

Also, is this the best way to get my list in printable form?

what version of jira you are running ? Not sure about the best way but that's the easiest and fastest way IMHO

I am running version 4.2

Looking at this article it seems to be best way as well

I thought so for jira 4.2 please refer this article

SELECT u.id, u.username, ps.propertyvalue INTO OUTFILE '/path/to/userlist.csv'
FROM userbase u JOIN propertyentry pe ON pe.entity_id = u.id JOIN propertystring ps ON ps.id = pe.id
WHERE  property_key = 'fullName' ORDER BY propertyvalue ASC;
