I've found/read numerous "answers" where LDAP users have been deleted by a corporate LDAP admin because they have left the company, been fired, contract was up, etc. The Jira Admin had no time to perform a bulk change.
Some answers alluded to creating a local jira user so a bulk change could be done. Great but what happens if you don't know what ldap users have been deleted so I want to perform a search. Well, if you use the gui to edit the issue, the assignee|reporter fields show up as 'unassigned'. If you display the issue, assignee|reporter fields show the 'userid' and not the full name of the user.
So what JQL syntax can I use to find issues that are assigned or reported by users that have been deleted in LDAP?
I'm not sure if it's possible to be done through JQL, but you extract this information directly from your database using this query:
select assignee from jiraissue where assignee not in (select user_name from cwd_user);
I hope this has helped.
