Map users form JIRA directory with Active Directory

Hi, all.

We have to migrate a JIRA and Confluence servers to use the Active Direcoty user database.

I can not find an information how can the users from JIRA/Confluence be mapped with the Active Directory users (some of their names differ in one way or another), and what happens with all the user defined data- comments, logged work etc.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Cheers, Tihomir.

Hi Tohomir, 

I think a good place to start off is by checking out the following article we have on user migrations.

Handling name differences will depend on which type of user directory you move to (connector vs delegated).
