I am looking to both migrate JIRA to a new server and also change from Local Auth to Active Directory.
Is there a process for changing the auth type and combining users?
I have found some posts about it but they are all applying for old versions of JIRA, I am using the latest version.
I believe the documentation bellow will clarify all your initial questions regarding this configuration: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Connecting+to+an+LDAP+Directory
Since you have Active Directory as LDAP, my recomendation is to use the delegated authentication.
See also the document bellow for migrating users between directories:
