I have created an AD group where I'm adding AD groups containing users that should be able to log in to Confluence.
I have successfully synchronised the whole AD but as we only have XX number of licenses, I would like to limit the number of accounts that are synchronised.
I've tried to follow the steps in the guide below but I cant get it to work.
I have tried setting this DN in the "Base DN" field but it failed to work:
However, when i only type in the following, it works and synchronise the whole AD.
Where should i add this field: CN=CONFLUENCE_GROUP_USERS,OU=User,OU=System,OU=Groups,OU=Resources
Try the following:
Then under your Additional Group DN you would specify your Confluence Access group.
Additional Group DN:
Also, ensure the users you are running the sync as has permissions into the OU's you are attempting to scan.
Im sorry, I could not get that to work.
The confluence web page https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/Changing+the+Number+of+Users+Synchronized+from+LDAP+to+Confluenceseems to state that I only should add the name of the group "
ou=confluence-users" where you suggest that i should put the full name "CN=CONFLUENCE_GROUP_USERS,OU=Users,OU=Company,DC=MyDomain,DC=Local"
I've tried both but It won't sync my users.
I assume CN=CONFLUENCE_GROUP_USERS,OU=User,OU=System,OU=Groups,OU=Resources,DC=world,DC=myad,DC=org is a group, right?
If you want just the users on this group to be synchronized, you can set your base DN to be DC=world,DC=myad,DC=org, leave both Additional User and Group DN’s empty, and under User Schema Settings->User Object Filter, you use a filter like this:
This will ensure only users on CONFLUENCE_GROUP_USERS will be pulled from AD.
Please let me know if this works for you.
Thank you, but I tried that solution but only the accounts that directly belonged to the Confluence group were found.
The users that had a group belonging to the Confluence group where not found (as the Confluence group wasn't directly connected to those users) so that didn't work for me unfortunately.
Most of us don’t need much convincing that stakeholder management is important. It just makes sense that keeping everyone in-the-know on projects and assigning clearly defined roles is key to having ...
