Possible to merge JIRA groups?

We recently merged an on-demand instance of JIRA with our on-site JIRA. We've encountered some issues regarding user management due to the differences of group-naming schemes on the old on-demand instance versus our on-site JIRA.

We'd like to take some groups that had similar purposes on both jira instances and merge them together to make it easier for us to manage adding users for specific roles. As an example, we currently have a 'developers' group and a 'jira-developers' group that we'd like to merge into just 'jira-developers' and hopefully along with that merge or delete move any permission association from "developers" to associate with "jira-developers". Is there an efficient way to do this outside of checking project associations on the old group, changing the permissions, adding all the members from this now-defunct group to the new group and then deleting the old group?

Our on-site JIRA is version 6.0.8.

Thanks in advance if you have any tips.
