Me and our system administrator are trying to make all confluence users managable from JIRA by adding of deleting them from the group "confluence users".
We used this instruction https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/connecting-to-crowd-or-jira-for-user-management-229838465.html but we ended up with all the users from JIRA imported to Confluence.
The problem is that we don't want all the users from JIRA to be in Confluence, we need in Confluence only those who were added to the confluence users" group.
Could anyone tell me how to do it, please?
I am using Jira as the user directory for both Confluence and Bitbucket. You control how have access to Confluence by setting up the Global Permissions. As an admin if you go to users and list all users you will see all users, even those that do not have access to Confluence because you are using Jira as the user directory. But if you configure the global permissions to only allow confluence-users and confluence-administrators to use Confluence, and go to People it will only show the users belonging to those groups.
I have seen cofigurations where Jira ran on a linux server but used Active Directory. In your case you could use LDAP, for example. But I guess your question was if it was possible to restrict imported users to Confluence by their groups using Jira user directory. And my answer was that it was not possible for Jira user directory. If you had such configuration in your previous work, then somebody will see the question and answer.
Weird not sure how you did it in your previous job.
If JIRA is the User Management then you have to create a user there first and then grant them access to other Applications.
In fact there are 2 groups that users get added to as soon as their accounts are created: jira-users and confluence-users.
Best of luck!
