We have recently changed our login directory from one domain to another and want to change the Admin group with the "Special permissions" and admin access everywhere to a group in our new login domain but I can't figure out how this is done.
you configure the basic Jira-admin permissions here:
There you can add the admin permissions to new groups. But be careful to not lose your own admin permission by doing this!
If you want to use LDAP groups to set permissions that works fine but please include a group called confluence-administrators in the LDAP directory you migrate to. If you cannot get that group created in LDAP, consider making your LDAP user directory "read-only with local groups" so you can add your admins to the confluence-adminstrators group in the Confluence Internal directory. This article explains in more detail: Confluence Admin Permission Levels Explained
"The confluence-administrators group defines a set of "super users" who can access the Administration Console and perform site-wide administration. Members of this group can also see the content of all pages and spaces in the Confluence instance, regardless of space permissions."
Please read this documentation about the effect of the directory order and the aggregating group memberships setting:
Please note that the doc says:
"Before you move an external directory above Confluence's internal directory, make sure you (and your admin users) are members of a group called confluence-administrators in your external directory or you may accidentally lock yourself out of the Confluence admin console."
For the future: I look forward to any follow-up questions.
