How to setup a LDAP filter on "users group"?


I would like to synchronize users between JIRA and my MS active directory. To avoid synchronizing all users from the AD, I’ve created a new users group (ie IVCWI_JIRA) and I’ve added a couple of users in this group.

In my directory settings in JIRA, do you know how to complete the filter to take in account only users from the AD who belonged to users group IVCWI_JIRA?

Now the User Object Filet is filled with "(&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=*))"

Thank you for your help!!

Hello, I get it! just a stupid mistake in my filter... coma missing!

Thank you!


Try something like this:

(&(objectCategory=Person)(sAMAccountName=*)(memberof=CN=VCWI_JIRA ,OU=Groups,OU=...,OU=...,DC=...,DC=com))

Replace ... with the relevent info.


please clarify - are you want import those users in jira internal directory ?

or want to limit search for increase speed of search?
or you aware of licence limit ?
