Some LDAP users were just added as users of confluence, and the LDAP Permissions are set to "Read Only, with Local Groups ". Those LDAP user can log in but he/she isn't added to the confluence-users group (it used to be the case). Nor he/she is in the confluence-users group member listing.
Furthermore, we also have this related problem. A user, say abc123, is listed in the confluence-users member listing, the kind you have from https://confluence.example.com/admin/users/domembersofgroupsearch.action?membersOfGroupTerm=confluence-users.
But when you click that user's name, which brings you to https://confluence.example.com/admin/users/viewuser.action?username=abc123, it says "This user isn't in any groups." Strange.
Some user can still log in and is a valid member of confluence-users group.
Where should I start to troubleshoot this problem?
Problems solved. This was our mistake in the LDAP configuration.
We use Confluence 5.4.4 with permissions set to "Read Only, with Local Groups ".
Lessons we learned (not necessarily the best practice or even correct, so your comments are most welcome):
I'd be grateful if someone can point out a number of best practices pertaining to this issue.
