I want to nest groups for various purposes. Some of that is already managed on AD, and I want to have a local Jira group leveraging AD groups.
I must be misreading something here, as there seems to be a contradiction:
>>You can't nest an internal group in an external group or vice versa.
In my eyes that reads:
(1) You cannot nest domain groups under Jira local groups
But, in the second example:
>>Add the [domain] engineering-group as a sub-group of jira-developers [which is an out of the box LOCAL group].
(2) an example of nesting a domain group under a local group.
(1) <> (2)
So... what am I missing here? Can you or can you not nest domain groups into a jira-local group?
Hey @Petra Goldstein
At least in Crowd (which is what user management in JIRA/confluence etc is all based on anyway), you’re able to place a remote group (ad/ldap) in a local group.
The documentation you’ve referenced does seem contradictory. I’d just give it a try!
NB: you cannot currently nest an azure ad group in a local crowd group.
Thanks, I actually gave it a try and it worked within the limited testing I have performed.
But the reason I ask is that perhaps something is meant by those Atlassian statements in the docs that would be a reason to reconsider, or give the matter deeper thought. I feel I may be simply missing something.
FWIW, we are using Jira Server (hosted locally) without Crowd.
