Tables modified when assiging assignees, reporters, watchers, work history?

I'm importing a JIRA project from one server to another.  These JIRA instances have different CROWD servers and the user naming convention is different.  Which tables need to be modified within the database, so that I can change the assignees, reporters, watchers, work history, etc. so that usernames are changed properly?


I'm using JIRA 6.2.1.

Ouch, that's not a fun job.

You will probably find it a LOT easier to consolidate the user names, or use Crowd's user Alias function to do this.

But if you must delve into the database

  • jiraissue - assignee and reporter
  • nodeassociation - voters and watchers
  • customfieldvalue - user picker custom fields
  • worklogs - for time logs for users
  • jiraaction - for comments (and other stuff if your JIRA has been around since version 1 or 2, and the data gradually upgraded)
  • changegroup - for issue history
  • components - for component leads
  • project - for project leads

I've probably missed a couple here though.  I've got a feeling there's another big one to mention, but my memory is failing  (It's Friday evening and I can hear the beer in the 'fridge calling)

Thanks! I only got half of these the first time around.
