Nesting groups with LDAP


I own a Confluence 6.0.6 over the past months and added a new user directory (LDAP one). Inside the configuration of the LDAP I enabled the nested group option.

Even though, I can't see the option to add groups from the AD into a sub group of the internal directories.

For example, one of the groups inside the AD called "Team" and I want to assign any "Team" member as a member of confluence-users and other internal groups.

To add LDAP groups to internal Confluence groups, please choose the "Read-only, with Local Groups" option in the LDAP user directory setup:
