Hi @Maikes ,
to connect to your Active Directory, you can follow this documentation : https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/connecting-to-an-ldap-directory-229838241.html
LDAP is the protocol used for the AD connection, you just need to configure this in your Confluence administration.
Let me know if this helps,
