We would like to switch our User Directory from our current LDAP instance to AD. I was able to get this working for authentication purposes, but I noticed that users existing groups stored in the internal Confluence directory do not show up when using AD.
Any way to have their groups show up in AD without reassigning them again?
It is working as expected. The local group memberships are part of the old User Directory and are lost if the User Directory is recreated or replaced. The new User Directory, which points at AD, doesn't have any way to refer to the local group memberships from the LDAP User Directory.
If you don't have a lot of groups you might consider adding the groups you use to assign permissions in Confluence to Active Directory. That way you won't have to recreate the local group memberships if you ever run into the issue described in: User login renders 'query did not return a unique result' error
