Need steps to migrate one Jira LDAP server to different LDAP? (with different userids) Edited

Looking for a general outline on steps to migrate from one LDAP authentication to another.   And with in the process all userid's being migrated in the process.

So at the end, the user yesterday would log in with old userid and password then the next day use the other domain username and password and nothing would seem different/lost.

  1. Test this in a Dev instance first (DO NOT do this for the first time in production)
  2. Write a script that will rename users via the REST API
  3. Disable the existing LDAP directory
  4. Run the script to rename the users to the usernames in new LDAP instance
  5. Set up Directory for new LDAP
  6. Enable new LDAP
  7. Validate with users in Dev and identify a repeatable process to use in Prod.
  8. Back up your Prod Jira instance
  9. Run the process you identified in step 7

This is not a trivial thing to do and there is high risk of things getting screwed up. Don't skimp on your development and testing time. We Solution Partners do this sort of thing for a living, so you might consider reaching out for help on this one.

Thank you,   We have a duplicate Jira VM we are working with.
