Moving users between user directories

Is there any way to move users from one directory to another? Perhaps, I want to move all users from Crowd directory into JIRA Internal directory to stop using Crowd anymore.

Hi Dmitri,

Apparently at the moment it's not possible for us to move users between user directories that have been configured in JIRA. There's a related feature request been raised to address this, you may kindly refer to it for more details on this:

Since the feature is yet to be implemented at the current moment, you may kindly add your vote to the feature request pointed above, and feel free to drop your comment there if you have any further feedback on this.

Though it's not much, I hope the clarification above helps.

As Faisal has mentioned, it is not possible to move one particular user from one directory to another. However, you are only able to migrate ALL users from one directory to another with JIRA 5.0.3 and later. This has been implemented on JRA-24213
