Assign an user group to another group ?


I wonder if it's possible to assign an user group at another group ?

For example, associate groupe A and B to create groupe C

Thank you

PS : I am a space admin, not confluence admin.

Hello Sébastien,

In this case you'd be looking for a feature called Nested Groups which is available for LDAP. See this:

I've raised a improvement request for this, though:


I hope it helps

No, a group is a collection of users.  You can't nest groups.

However, if you are using LDAP for an external user directory, you can do it in there.  (Although the groups still look like sets of users in Confluence)

Hi all,

Thanks for your quick answers

Thank you Eduardo for request, i look it carefully
