Merging/Migrating User between User Directories

I have a problem with a JIRA-User after adding our Active Directory to the user directories in JIRA (6.1.3).

This guy got an account in the JIRA Internal Directory like this: lastname,firstname (notice the comma instead of a full stop), but our name convention for the AD is lastname.firstname. So after adding the AD I want to merge/migrate the comma-account to the new one, or at least rename it to match (which isn't possible as it is, since the full stop-account already exists.)

The goal should be that he logs in as lastname.firstname and still got all the issues and what else that he created with the other account.

You can use of the Script Runner's built-in scripts - "Rename a user ID" -

This script has two modes - rename and merge, so it should do the job.

That worked! Thank you.

The script successfully did its job, but now I got a lot of load on the system. Is that to be expected?

This might be due to indexing. I think it was mentioned in the documentation of this script.
