we are planning to use a Active Directory for user authentication. Therefore i created a new "Confluence AD Administrator" Group in the Active Directory. Now i want to know if it's possible to to grant "Super User" Rights to the newly created group.
Tiago is correct. You are more than free to create a group called confluence-administrator inside your LDAP. This is the default administrators group that will grant all users in it Super User Rights.
If you wanted to keep your group name you could visit Confluence Admin > Global Permissions and add your "Confluence AD Administrator" as a group in the top permissions area. You would then mirror the permission scheme that the "confluence-administrator" for that group. I am including a link to our global permissions over document below.

But nevertheless my new Administrator Account is not allowed to see any spaces. Next thing I'll try is naming a group confluence-administrator in the Active Directory.
