How to import/integrate LDAP groups with JIRA Groups

Hi,

I need to implement an internal group in JIRA linked to LDAP group. 
For e.g. I have 'ABC', 'DEF', 'GHI', groups in LDAP.

I want to integrate them in a JIRA Group.
i.e ABC + DEF + GHI = new JIRA  group. 

 

many thanks,
Tayyab

JIRA doesn't do nested groups - you'll need to manually add all the users from each group into your internal group.

It does read them and flatten them though, so if you created a nested LDAP group, you'd be ok (In LDAP, have a group called all-of-them, which just contains ABC, DEF and GHI.  JIRA will see a group called all-of-them, with all the users from all three groups in it)

If I create a group in LDAP with ABC, DEF, GHI. and make a single group out of them. 
How would I integrate that group with JIRA group?

It'll be presented to JIRA as a group like the others. 

So I should filter out the users by writing something in "User Object Filter" in the User Scheme Settings right? 

I'm not much aware of LDAP conventions and how to use filters, but I guess you can i would have to do something with user object filter, am i right?

My understanding of LDAP filters is pretty basic too, but yes, you can do things in JIRA with filters.  I've only ever used simple ones like "only import users and groups from an OU=xyz", but that should do the job for you.

Okay thanks, I'm looking into it. 

Btw there's an option you can turn on to enable nested groups in jira.
We have that turned on for us

That's to tell JIRA that the directory you are using has nested groups.  You'll need it turned on or your all-of-them group will appear to be empty!

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
