I have just switched Confluence from being managed by the internal directory to using a crowd delegating directory (the same directory currently used by our JIRA instance).
The usernames were the same before and after the switch and I created groups with identical group names in crowd before the switch.
Things seem to mostly work, but I've seen at least one case where group membership didn't seem to work, where the group membership was nested. When I made the user a direct member of the crowd group the user was able to access the page.
So I'm wondering if I remembered to have a checkmark for "nested groups" when setting up the crowd directory?
I didn't see any such setting in the confluence application in crowd.
And I can't see the directory settings in Confluence, since I'm currently logged in through crowd.
Is there any way to list the directory settings without reenabling the internal confluence directory and putting it first in the directory list?
(switching directories will at least during the switch break logins for a lot of people, so I would like to avoid that if I can)
There is a Directory Configuration Summary link on the User Directories page: How to generate a Directory Configuration Summary
That nested groups checkbox is off by default so your theory is sound. If it's off you will see this in the summary:
I look forward to hearing what you find.
Yep, this was it. I did the following:
