We've been using Confluence for a couple years now. In that time we have added all our users manually in Confluence, but, new we would like to integrate Confluence with Active Directory. Will it recognize the users that have been added manually in confluence as duplicates and merge them with the Active Directory users? Or will there be duplicates of the users we've already added manually?
Hi @Mike C,
Welcome to Atlassian Community.
If your usernames are the same in the internal user directory as in the LDAP all the permissions will be kept. No merge will happen, if you look in the database you will see duplicate entries, but they are referencing the two different user directories.
What I meant was that if you have a user in your internal user directory that also will be imported by the LDAP directory, if you switch the order to the directories so LDAP is above, that user will keep his/her permissions.
Example: My username in the internal directory is msandb, and if I add a new user directory where my username is the same, I will keep my permissions. If my username in the LDAP directory is mikael instead of msandb, Confluence will see me as a new user if I log in as mikael.
