Confluence does not ask which User directory to use

Hi

I am on confluence 4.3.2 and when in our confluence we have two user directories, 1. Microsoft AD and 2. Internal

Now when i am creating a user on confluence i expect confluence to ask me (or have a field) for me to select which user directory i want to use , but it does not.

I know on jira 6.1 we have this feature, you can explicitly tell jira which user directory to use for creating the user.

How can i get round this issue on confluence?

Hi Rahul.

The correct feature request is CONF-22296. as the one Rodrigo raised is a duplicate.

At the moment Confluence creates the user in the Directory with the highest priority (listed first in the list of directories). As a workaround, you could put the user directory you want to create the user in the first position before you create the user. Please be aware this may affect the user directory a user authenticate against if the user is present in multiple user directories.

thanks Alex...that helps. I will follow this feature request.,

Hi Rahul,

Indeed, confluence doesn't ask in which user directory you'd like to create the user within while jira does this.

I've created a feature request for you here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-34433

I recommend to vote and ask your colleagues to vote as well to increase popularity and the chance to be implemented in the future.

Cheers,

Rodrigo
