Mapping cloud-users to existing active-directory users

Hi Atlassian Community,

we want to migrate from Jira Cloud to an self-hosted system. Our challenge is, that the new self-hosted Jira will use an active directory where the users already exist an have different usernames as in the cloud. 


Cloud: username=sebastian

AD: username=sebastian.oos

After the content-migration to the self-hosted instance, the user should login as "sebasatian.oos", with all the assignments and privileges from his old username "sebastian".

So our question: is there a way to achieve this?

Many thanks in advance,
