Confluence 2.2.8

Hi guys,

I've a Confluence environment, which I believe is

Version 2.2.8
Build Number 525

My question is how do I get admin access, given that I've full control of the DB and the web server?

I've tried to add a regular user to different groups in [os_user_group] or setting up the admin user with same password hash from regular user. None of these has worked. Restarting Tomcat and Apache also did not help. Any clues?

Is confluence using its own internal user management or delegating to an LDAP directory or Crowd etc.?? As that may be getting in the way

Users are using their Windows domain user/passwords, so I'd imagine LDAP is being used

How do I determine it is the case for our environment? It might be a very novice question, but I am a very novice in Confluense with not much information about our install.

Take a look at:
http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF25/Customising+atlassian-user.xml

Thanks, but this configuration file is all commented out. Just got <osuser key="osuserRepository" name="OSUser Repository" />

Any other clues?

Hmm. I'd start grep-ing the filesystem for your AD hostname/IP address at this point

I've done that and no meaningful result was returned. As now I'm pretty sure that it is using Domain authentication, managed to find some LDAP settings in Jive database. Table '[jiveProperty]'.

Can you provide a link with howto modify the Jive forum -> Confluense integration in order to achieve the AD authentication?

I think you're on your own here. Jive forum integration? Sounds like fun ;-)

Thanks for all your suggestions on this. It seems that it is indeed using SSO integration with Jive Forums.
