Can you choose two "Default" groups?

So, in Confluence, there is one group which is set as "Default", so new users are automatically added to that group. But what if you want users to automatically be members of two groups when they're added?

Is this possible?

Hi Bryan,

Unfortunately you can have only one Default groups for each application (JIRA / Confluence). The "Default" groups are usually the ones with the most basic access level. They also hold the users that count towards your license usage.
