confluence-admin is a group that is in the Confluence built-in directory, and I am trying to add users to that directory, but I cannot.
We have Active Driectory for our user directory.
So, the order of user directories is:
* Our AD Server
* Confluence Builtin Directory
When i try to add a user to the confluence-admin group, nothing happens. I suspect that this is because Confluence is trying to update that group in Active Directory, which does not exist there, but cant update the Confluence local dir.
What tdo I need to do to allow adding users to the confluence-admin group?
Everyone can login just fine. But I cannot add new users to the confluence-admin group I think that this is because the directory that holds it does not know anything about the users in our AD Domain, so when I try to add a user from there, the add just fails.
I do not get an error messge, I just dont see the user added to the list.
Did you get a resolution to this? I have the same configuration and same problem. I previously added users to our confluence-administrtators group but now that I have AD added as a user directory in JIRA I cannot add anyone to the confluence-administrators group.
Could you please double check if the user directories configured is currently set to have "Read Only, with Local Group" permission.
With this permission, you should be able to access your "confluence-administrators" group from "Manage Group" menu and try to add the users from there.
Hope it helps.
Also if @CharlesH [Free spirit] already noted that it is possibly not the directory order, give it a try and switch the order. The docs say
Changes to users and groups will be made only in the first directory where the application has permission to make changes.
