When using AD for authentication, users are not automatically added to confluence-users group

Although I have configured my AD connector to add users to the confluence-users group automatically when they login, this doesn't happen in all cases.

There are many, but the attached screenshot shows just one use as an example.

This widget could not be displayed.

In cases like that, I suggest you to check the logs to see errors related to membership.

Also check if the confluence-users group have the "Can Use" in Global Permissions.

Also if you have more then one directory set (e.g. Confluence Internal and LDAP), be sure that you don't have 2 users with the same username.

Hi Bruna,

It was because of 2 users with the same username.
