I deleted the original Admin user in Confluence

and now I can't edit the AD User Directory. I can only test and synchronise...

What can I do to overcome this?

Thanks!

Hi,

You may be able to identify and create a new admin by following the steps provided in our documentation:

Hi,

well, I do have an admin user. I can also log in to the admin part. What I can not do is edit the "User Direcotries" Active Directory setup I created with the deleted admin user.

Any ideas how to get these rights back?

Thanks!

Emiliano,
In Confluence you should be able to edit the User Directories. You might want to double check if you belong to the confluence-administrators group, which is Confluence's default group for admin powers.
