The directory in Atlassian is available to multiple Atlassian products like Jira, Confluence, etc.
I am trying to create an account in the directory using the POST API . The user created can be accessed by both Jira and Confluence. However, I want to create users only for Confluence and not for Jira.
Similarly when I am using the DELETE API to remove/deactivate a user from the directory, it is removing the user even if the user has access to other Atlassian products(like Jira, Confluence, etc.). I want to delete a user only for Confluence but the user should be able to access Jira.
Are there any other APIs for user creation/deletion that is Atlassian product specific? I need to create and delete users only from Confluence irrespective of other atlassian product accesses. Please help.
Okay. So you mean I can add users to the directory and make them part of a specific user groups for Jira and Confluence separately?
What should I do if I have a user account as a part of a directory and belonging to two groups, one for Confluence and one for Jira. But I need to revoke Confluence access from the user while maintaining Jira access. Should removing the user from the Confluence group be enough to restrict Confluence access for the user?
Yes, exactly, removing the group, which provides access to Confluence, should be enough. User will still be able to get to Jira, but not to Confluence.
When I am fetching all the groups using the Fetch Groups API, I am getting a list of groups in the response that includes a group for Confluence named confluence-users that has been generated automatically because I did not create this group explicitly. I also see a number of groups for Jira (jira-administrators, jira-core-users, jira-servicemanagement-users, jira-software-users) all generated automatically.
I want to create a group in the directory, add accounts as members to the group and provide the group with Confluence access so that only the users that are part of the group can access Confluence. Are there any APIs that can be used to provide Confluence access to a group and revoke Confluence access from a group?
Hi @Mrinalini Pal ,
is there any particular reason, why do you want to create a new group for this? Because confluence-users and all these groups were prepared exactly for this purpose, so I would recommend you to use these (if user is a member of confluence-users, he has access to Confluence etc.)
