add user from confluence data-center to Active Directory

hey everyone,

how can I create user in atlassian products (like confluence data-center) and automatically add it to Active Directory?

Originally you need to connect to AD user directory in read-write mode. 

But I don't recommend to do it. 

Better to connect to AD user directory in read-only, and create users in AD side. 

Because AD user has many other attribute can be used for other products.

Thanks for you answer

I'm in read-only mode and I didn't test read/write mode.

If I go into write mode, would I be possible to add user in confluence and it will be added to AD automatically?

@Rouhollah Naby it depends of the configuration. 

Please, check filter.


I do recommend you to still use as read-only and work from AD side.

OK, Thanks a lot

If I didn't want to add user from confluence user management, I wanted to make a form in confluence to add user with all defined attributes there and post the form to AD with LDAP protocol. I didn't want to add user from AD side. Could you please help me how can I make that form and post it to AD?
