Managing Bulk Users: Features & More!
The bulk user management add-on ensures users can manage their accounts more efficiently using the Bulk User Management add-on. It makes it possible to perform actions such as import/export users, bulk delete, or even deactivate inactive users.
Let’s have a look at the features Bulk user management has:
With this feature, we can import and export users of an organization into JIRA. If the data of users are stored in CSV format then it can easily be imported into JIRA.
With the export users, we can easily export users from JIRA into CSV format. Also, it is possible to export specific details such as username, email, full name, groups, status, and directory.
With this feature the logs or the recent activity performed related to User activation, deactivation, import, export, and scheduler enabled by the admin will be displayed. The feature has many filters. Based on IP address, User name, Actions, and past days the logs can be displayed. This feature is helpful for tracking the activity. Past 6 months’ data can be displayed using this feature.
One of the main features of Bulk User Management is deactivating users. It also has many additional features within deactivating users like Auto deactivate users, Deactivate never logged in users, Exclude groups for auto deactivation and Days after which the scheduler should be planned.
Auto-deactivate users as the name suggests helps you automatically delete users. It lets you deactivate users who haven’t logged in for a particular amount of days.
Let’s say you want users who haven’t logged in for 20 days to be deactivated, all you have to do is enable the auto deactivate users button and the users who haven’t logged in for 20 days will be deactivated. You can also deactivate never logged in users. You can exclude a particular group for auto deactivation. Hence users from that particular group will not be deactivated even if they haven’t logged in for the number of days you have selected in the days option for auto deactivate users.
The scheduler helps you run the cycle of deactivation after every specific number of days.The scheduler runs after every certain number of days selected by the admin and hence the process would be performed after every cycle is complete and thus automate the whole process.
