What does store the EXTERNAL_ENTITIES table in jira database ?

I'm presently facing issues cause double entries for a signle user exist in this table.

Deleting one entry solve the java exception displaying on issue.

Thanks

Hi William,

The external_entities table will store LDAP users information. However, the table is only being used up to JIRA 4.2.x, and starting JIRA 4.3, the table had been replaced with cwd_user table.

Having duplicated entry in the external_entity might sound to be causing some problem in JIRA.

I hope that this will help.

Thanks.

Hi,

thanks for your reply, that's quite strange that a table still exists as it's not used anymore. It may be used for the ldap connector when user management is made directly within jira ...

Anyway thanks again !
