Move users from one group to another - bulk - same instance

Hi Guys,

 

I have a group in jira (local group) with over 10.000 users in it. Can i somehow copy/move let's say half of this users to another local group in same instance?

 

Can't find a way.

 

Thanks.

Well I think that using REST API should work. I mean there is a add and get user to group method

https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/8.13.0/#api/2/group-addUserToGroup

https://docs.atlassian.com/software/jira/docs/api/REST/8.13.0/#api/2/group-getUsersFromGroup

So you should be able to build a simple script to get users from a specific group and add them to another in other words move those users that you want.

I was in the past had similar problem but I was using Crowd and was able to use this KB

Maybe a similar way would be for Jira but REST API should work..

Not sure, but maybe there are also some plugins to copy groups (and modify them on the fly)but do not have any name on my mind

Maybe you can also use this way..
