Automated disabling new users from AD


We are using AD as external user management source. Is there a way to automatically disable all users from AD/LDAP dictionary until they explicitly enabled in Confluence? We plan to allow only a few of them to use Conluence.

Best regards,

Hi Alexander,

I would suggest writing a LDAP search filter to only synchronize the users that should be allowed to use Confluence. See here on how to write such a filter:
