Enable auto user creation in Confluence integration with Okta

Karthik Gajjala Jan 29, 2015

I have integrated an on premise Confluence setup with Okta. Confluence is connected to our backend AD for user authentication. I am unable to auto create users in Confluence if they do not exist. 

There is a setting "Copy User on Login" which does this but only available in JIRA. I could not find it in Confluence or something similar.

Appreciate any pointers !

Crowd is not required for LDAP authentication or automatically adding users to a group on initial login.  If you go to the Directory Configuration Summary in your running instance then you should see the 'confluence-users' as an attribute  

{application url}/confluence/plugins/servlet/embedded-crowd/support/directories


If it is not then you may need to modify the directory configuation used for the LDAP directory.

HINT:  You can not modify a directory if you are logged in as a member of that directory so use the local system account you created when you installed Confluence.

I recommend you open a ticket with Atlassian Support if you cant get this workiing right away.
