Without using LDAP, add every new user to a named group?

How would I automatically add every new user into a particular group? (Confluence 5.3.x)

In 3.5 I could add an authenticator (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF34/Automatically+Add+LDAP+users+to+the+confluence-users+Group)

Not this is not to add to confluence-users, but rather a different group.

Hi Martin,

You could use the Confluence CLI:


There is a method you can call to addusertogroup:


You'd need a way to trigger this job to run when a user logs in for the first time. This most likely would take a trigger on the database, possibly on the logininfo table. Any time a user logs in for the first time it should be recorded there.
