I've connected JIRA 5.0.1 to our MS Active Directory by creating a new user directory in JIRA. All my users from the AD are well added to this new JIRA directory.
However groups linked to those imported users come from the AD and are not the groups previously defined in JIRA (such jira-users, jira-developers, …).
Is there a way to link existing group from JIRA and to avoid importing the groups from the Active Directory when I'm importing users from AD?
In order to use JIRA groups for your LDAP users you will need to configure your LDAP directory to use "Read Only with Local Group" permission setting.
In order to avoid your directory to synchronize the LDAP groups into your JIRA, you will need to create a search filter that can't retrieve any groups. For example using "DummyValue" such as
In order to configure a default group(s) for all of your LDAP users, you could use "Adding Users to Groups Automatically". This feature will allow your LDAP users to be added into the configured local group(s) automatically during their first log-in.
Hope it helps.
Thank you very much for your answer, it helps in this way that my imported users are not linked to AD groups.
However is there a way to assign default JIRA groups when importing those users such it works when I create a user manually in JIRA? Do we exclusively need working with Crowd for that?
Depending on how big your AD is, if you have nested groups, and also if you want similar group management in more than one Atlassian app, you might want to consider using Crowd for additional controls and SSO between the apps ..
Here's for filtering in Crowd..
