How do I give Admin Rights to an AD User in Crowd?

I have a Crowd instance that has an Active Directory and an OpenLDAP server configured as Directories. I always have to log in with the crowd internal root user for administrative tasks and I want to delegate this access to the admin accounts of my admin users.

These admin accounts already have the necessary in JIRA, Confluence etc. but I can't find a way to give them admin access in Crowd.

I already tried to create a group named "crowd-administrators" in AD, just like in the internal directory, but my admin user still doesn't have admin rights in crowd.

Creating such a group in AD was actually the right thing to do. Please also make sure that this AD group belongs to the list of authorised groups for this application (crowd) in Crowd's console and that the "System administrator" and "admin" boxes are checked.

Thanks, that did the trick. I searched everywhere in Crowd except in the application.
