Restore JIRA Users only?

I just upgraded to 7.0 and migrated to a new server.  Previously we were kind of in a "test run".  I don't want to import all my workflows, types, issues and other stuff, but I would like to retain my user tables.  

Can I simply restore dbo.cwd_user?  Are there other tables needed? Any other considerations or concerns?

Hi Scott!

Instead of changing data directly in your database, I would recommend to just delete all the projects and workflows for this JIRA instance and keep only the user data.

There are several tables with user data besides the cwd_user one.


Hmm, my concern is that this was a test environment and it is very cluttered. My aim is "fresh and clean". Besides, I only have about 10 users. I'd rather have them reregister than risk leaving some clutter or broken constraints.

Is there any way to do SSO with Office 365 yet? :)
