We've got JIRA 6.1 running with authentication delegated to LDAP, read only. We'd now like to add the latest Confluence version to the mix and it seems there are a couple options:
Is there a best practice for this? Are their additional strengths/weaknesses of each option?
I Agree with Tiago, the first option is a better practice because it will maintain LDAP as the User Manager, centralising it.
The only strengths by using Jira for user management is if don't have an LDAP.
Another option that could be good now that you have Confluence and Jira, is to add Crowd in case you want to enable SSO (Single Sign On).
In that case, when you have LDAP, Crowd, Jira and Confluence (because of SSO), then we recommend to set LDAP -> Crowd and then Crowd -> Jira and Crowd -> Confluence.
