Better logging for Confluence 5.x LDAP connections?

Hello everyone,

I have a Confluence that stopped syncing with an external LDAP. I searched the logfiles but I need more details. Does anyone knows if there are packages/classes that I can add to the logging & profile page (/admin/viewlog4j.action) and set them to DEBUG?

I saw an article: I am unsure if this article resolves my problem.

Hello Peter,

As far as I know, confluence can enable two packages for user management issues such as:

This is better explained in this page as well. I hope this helps!

Hello Rodrigo,

the both classes are set in the profiling and debugging page by default. to INFO. The last days I already switched them to debug when I switched the profile into diagnostic mode, but there is no additional output in the atlassian-confluence.log

Hi Peter,

I was investigating a bit more abour LDAP logging and I believe there are some extra classes you may want to add in confluence UI:

Add these classes and make them use DEBUG. The crowd embedded is the one that handles the LDAP and other external connections so it should be showing any error related to them and confluence.

Note that restarting confluence will reset and remove these classes.

I hope this helps!



Hello Rodrigo,

Thank you for your reply.

I will try this and will report the results.

Best regards, Peter
