Bulk Change the Owner of Structures and Synchronisers


Structure for Jira allows you to create structures to organise issues and projects. This script changes the owner of all structures and synchronisers which belonged to a particular user to a different one.


As a Jira administrator, I want to remove a particular user from the Jira instance. Using this script, I can transfer all the structures owned by the disabled user to a different owner.
