We use Active Directory Users and Groups for permissioning in Confluence. We also have a handfull of users and groups defined in Confluence. When Admins administer permissions, it would be helpful if there's an indication next to users and groups that notes the source, AD or Confluence.
I thought about renaming Confluence groups adding a prefix but apparently you can't name groups in Confluence.
Any advice on how you manage permissions regarding users and groups in a mixed enviornment would be helpful.
We use Active Directory to manage our internal users/groups and Confluence to manage our external users. We solved this issue by creating groups in AD that were prefaced with "CG" (Confluence Group). For example, we have CG Development, CG Marketing, etc. Then our internal user ids are placed in those groups via AD. The external users are managed within Confluence but we don't have them associated with any groups since we have very few external users (less than 10 users).
