How to add groups from LDAP automatically?

I'd like to add groups from our LDAP directory containing their users (rather than having to add groups manually and add the users one by one).

I have clicked "Re-Sync" in the "LDAP Authentication settings" and I can see the changes in the "Users" section of the admin page. However, I can't see my LDAP groups in the "Groups" section.

What filter does Fisheye apply to identify LDAP groups?




Hi Felipe,

thanks for the answer. I'll have to consult our SVN admins for that. I'll keep you posted.

Hi Steffen,

One of the LDAP configuration fields in FishEye is the "When Synchronisation Happens", in which you can decide to "Copy new users and changes to existing users".

This means that on every re-sync any new LDAP group associated to existing FishEye LDAP users will be added to FishEye, and also any new LDAP users with their corresponding groups will be added to FishEye.

Can you please give this a try?

If this answer was helpful, please allow me to ask you to mark my answer as accepted in order to have it in the top of the thread, also helping other customers.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Felipe Kraemer
