Hi Miguel,

Do Any error appears in Confluence logs? If the users don't appear in the groups, he's no being found by some filter or the user is not within the Base DN set. I recommend to check if the Base DN, User DN and group DN are correct and also check the filters.



Thank Rodrigo,

My problem was enabled option "Follow Referrals".

Best regards.

Great finding. Thanks for sharing it with the community. Cheers!
