Jira - How to add a sub-group or nested-group

Hi, I have added Confluence to Jira for user authentication. On the Jira server I have added a user to the group confluence-users. I can log into confluence with the user that exists in Jira.

I am unable to figure out how to add the group confluence-users to the group jira-users so that all members of the group jira-users can log into confluence.

When I go to add to the group jira-users I can only see users and not groups.

So I cannot figure how to create nested groups.

It is working. I missed a new link called "Edit Nested Group Members" after I enabled nested groups.


Nested groups are not supported, AFAIK. You need to make sure that the user belongs to both groups confluence-users and jira-users if the user is expected to use both products.

Could you also change the Global permissions in Confluence to use the JIRA User group as the group to grant access?
