We have setup crowd to connect to our active directory. We have added the groups jira-users, jira-administrators, confluence-users, etc,etc. We have verified that if a user is placed into a active directory group on the active directory side and you synchronize, you will be able to login to the app using that directory using your active directory credentials. YOu can see these users in the group jira-users in Crowd. However if we added a active directory group like "SoftwareDevTeam" to the jira-users group and syncrhonize, you dont see any users or sub groups.
