I have JIRA 6.3.3 and 500 users in internal directory.
Plan is to move to Internal Directory with LDAP Authentication.
My question is what happens to existing users? If I have a current user with username john.smith after LDAP setup will this user still be the same entity in JIRA or I will have a second john.smith in JIRA?
I assume as long at the username in JIRA matches that of LDAP it should just be fine and no new user is created in JIRA. But I need confirmation so I know what needs to be done after LDAP setup.
Also should I enable "Copy user on First login"? Does that not create a duplicate john.smith?
Depending on what the answer is I would like to know what happens for users whose username in JIRA internal does not match the one in LDAP.
but was not clear on these questions.
