Combined User List


Is there is a way that we could ensure that we have 1 master list and both JIRA and Confluence are automatically synched to the 1 same list that would really help for us in administering the user management. This is instead of having to log into each portal to check who has licenses (or is a registered user for either confluence or Jira).

We have a locally installed version of Jira/Confluence

Cheers. So I am guessing I would need to setup and configure a 'crowd' server first of all?


No, because you already have one, sort of. 

JIRA and Confluence have an "embedded crowd" which provides their internal directories.  The embedded crowd can't be extended or used for most other applications, but you can tell a Confluence system to use a JIRA's embedded Crowd.  That's what the doc is about.

If you do that with your Confluence, you will be able to manage your JIRA and Confluence users purely in JIRA.



So is it just the below i have to follow?


1. Connect Confluence to a JIRA application:

2.Set up the JIRA user directory in Confluence:


Yes, just follow the steps in the second part of the doc.

Is there currently an issue with the site? Can't seem to view several of the support/config docs :(
