How to Filter Users When Using Active Diredctory

We are going to be switching to Active Directory to manage our Confluence users.  Is there a way to filter users?  We don't want everyone in Active Directory to have access to the wiki.

In the LDAP setup under "User Schema Settings" you would specify and LDAP query in the "User Object Filter" field. It could be something like this ...


This above query would return users that are classified in LDAP as a "Person", aren't disabled, and are part of the confluence-users group in LDAP.

Hi Davin,

I am sorry, I am probably not being very clear.  I don't want everyone that is listed in Active Directory to become a member of the confluence-users group.

The filter will not make everyone a member of the confluence users group. The filter below will instruct confluence to only sync users who are members of the confluence-users group into Confluence. That is just an example of how to do it and happens to be how we do it in my organization.
