Hide Active Directory Groups in Jira

We currently have our Jira instance connected to Active Directory. When a user views another user in Jira they can see every Active Directory group that user is a party of. We need to hide a certain groups so that when viewing a user that group is does not show up.

Is this possible?

To hide specific groups, patterns of groups etc, you should use the ldap filter attribute groupFilter. See this.

We did this for confluence aswell. Setting a groupFilter that would never be true effectively hid Active Directory groups.

Can you use a more restrictive BaseDN? If you're syncronizing the directory, that's about the best you can do. If you use a separate Crowd that you then connect to Jira, you have a lot more flexibility over what groups show up in Jira.
