Active Directory

We use confluence as Intranet in our company, and we maintain two directory, one is link to AD and the other is internally created . My question is, whenever I click the picture on the blog post (excerpt) macros, it leads me to the profile link to Active Directory not to the localy created account from which I upload and created the blog. Is there a way to point this to locally created account eventhough both of the account are active. Thanks.

Hi Caesar, in case you have two user accounts with the same username (one in each directory) Confluence will use only the user account that belongs to the directory listed on the top position at "Confluence administrtion > User Directories".

In case you want to use only the internal user account, you can either move the internal directory to the top position or remove the LDAP user account from the synchronization (it can be done with a filter, see here).

I hope it helps.


Thanks Tiago, we are having some trouble with our link to AD, thats why we use the local account for easy log in, will try your suggestions when we fixed the issue on our end. Thanks.
