Confluence - LDAP integration: Members of sub-groups exported like a members of their top group

Hi,

I'm using Confluence 3.4.9. My Confluence is integrated with an Active Directory. Here is an example of I want to do:

In AD, group memberships are:

consultants --> sub-groups: editors; users: Peter

editors --> users: Will

Using userSearchFilter I get all consultants members, including membres of the nested group editors.

Using groupSearchFilter I get only consultants group (I don't want its sub-groups).

This is the result:

Peter --> Member of consultants

Will --> Member of any group.

But I want this:

Peter --> Member of consultants

Will --> Member of consultants.

I want all the members of sub-groups are exported like a members of their top group (because I don't want export sub-groups because the permits are granted to top groups, I need sub-groups for nothing).

How can I do this? Can anyone help me?

Thank you.

PD: Sorry for my English.

It seems like "Advanced Settings" -> "Enable Nested Groups", is only available in confluence 3.5 and later.
