I have 350 users that will use Confluence but i need to have the whole people directory loaded (sync which Active Directory), which is almost 2000 people.
Do we have limitation?
Confluence has not limited outside users. In Global Permission you must select any group with Log In permission. Each user with permission Log In eat from your licence volume.
For your situation: You must create a special group for Confluence (the name ConfluenceUsers for example) for your 350 users and have 2 solution:
1) In configuration user directory for AD modify group (add (cn=ConfluenceUsers) - https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/oQ2zDQ)
So, you see (in users administration) only 350 yours users - it's my prefer variant.
2) No modify AD group (only set ConfluenceUsers group in Global permission)
So, you see (in users administration) all of 2000 yours users, but only 350 users can log in.
Yes there is a limitation for it. As Confluence instances determine its license user count by the number of users who has ‘can-use’ global permission in Confluence, if you plan to load 2000 users from your AD you can only grant 'can-use' global permission to 500 users.
I would suggest you to create a particular group for those users and configure Confluence to synchronise a subset of users from LDAP, rather than all users. You might want to check this documentation for further details of this configuration.
