Multiple Users Created when Importing from Trac for Each Different Email Address

Still need help?

The Atlassian Community is here for you.

Ask the community


For every email addresses used for users in Trac will be imported as a user whether the email addresses are for same user in Trac or not.


The importer plugin can't differentiate whether any email address is actually for any same user. It will consider every email address as a different user. 


Perform a process like search and replace in Trac database updating all the required email addresses to only 1 email address.

There's a python script developed by a customer - that can help in achieving this (A lot of thanks to Henry Hughes).
