I have a 50 user license and have Confluence integrated with JIRA and JIRA Agile. JIRA is the primary user database and this syncs to Confluence.
I'd like to change my setup to be controlled via Active directory(LDAP) but my AD user base is 300+ users.
I have a few questions:
Currently when I buy a license for JIRA, I also need to buy a license for Confluence, even though the user may not ever use Confluence(I'm guessing this is because of the authentication being shared across both systems)
The reverse is also true. I may not want to give users access to JIRA; only Confluence.
Both JIRA and Confluence work out your licencing based on the groups they see users in.
By default, they ship with internal groups called jira-users and confluence-users, and they use these in the "global permissions" to say "anyone in this group can log in". They also have administrator groups who can log in as well
You don't have to use those groups, you can add others to the permission, and remove the default groups if that suits you.
The important thing is that the number of people who can log in is what counts against the licence.
So, with AD enabled you could do something like:
That setup will consume 30 JIRA licences and 70 Confluence licences, even though there are 300 people. Note that the JIRA and confluence groups are completely separate - you can put someone in JIRA or Confluence or both, or neither.
