I followed the directions at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/Integrating+Crowd+with+Atlassian+Confluence to set up SSO. The Crowd directory is visible and works within Confluence just fine, and I have disabled Confluence's built-in directory: Logging into Confluence using Crowd accounts works great. No problems there! However, when I get to step 2.2 and switch to the CrowdAuthenticator in seraph-config.xml and modify crowd.properties in /confluence/WEB-INF/classes/crowd.properties to the following, I am unable to log into my Confluence application:
#Fri Nov 16 15:01:18 CST 2012
# changed to application password as defined in Crowd
# application name as defined in Crowd
crowd.server.url=https ://host_name.ahc.umn.edu :8443/crowd/services/
# added per directions
application.login.url=https ://host_name.ahc.umn.edu :8443/crowd
I am getting an error of 2012-11-30 12:39:28,841 WARN http-8443-7 atlassian.seraph.auth.DefaultAuthenticator login login : 'gms' tried to login but they do not have USE permission or weren't found. Deleting remember me cookie.

Please let me know why this does not work. The directions are pretty clear.
Are you sure that your user is part of a group that has USE permissions inside Confluence?
If you take a look at the document we recommend that the user be placed inside the confluence-users or confluence-administrators group within Crowd. This ensures that they are inside default groups in Confluence.
Also within Confluence we want to make sure that the Crowd User Directory is placed first in the List of directories. If there is a gms user in the Confluence internal, or any other direcotry that is not part of the a permitted groups in Confluence you could be seeing this error.
Those would be the first places I would look. We can dig a bit deeper if necessary.
Just checked my Crowd users, and user gms is definitely in groups that have USE permissions, in particular, I added it to both confluence-users and confluence-admin groups.
However, in Confluence, the Crowd user directory is not first in the list. That being said, gms is not a member of the Confluence directory, just Crowd (see below for user output from the Confluence user console). In any case I can try switching the order of the directories, if you think that would make a difference.

Sorry now just getting back to this issue. The direcotry order would only matter if the user gms was in the directory listed above the crowd directory. As gms is not a member of the Confluence internal directory this should not matter.
The formatting on your post above is a little heard to read. Is this from your Crowd or Confluence interface? Are you able to take a screen shot of the page?
I'm seeing the same thing during an upgrade and it looks more like Confluence not being able to connect to Crowd than anything else. I'm at a loss as to why as i've re-used the various settings from the old install (3.4) which has no issues connecting.
There are also no errors or anything in the crowd log files...
I have the same problem when tried upgrading confluence from 2.8.1 to 5.1.2.
The problem by me was the confluence-administrators and confluence-users group haven't been migrated ( the problem started from version 3.5.x)
I followed the workaround described in https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Restoring+Passwords+To+Recover+Admin+User+Rights
