Looking in the Audit Log, Jira randomly removed users from a few different LDAP groups. Looking in Exchange, those users are still in the appropriate groups. What would be causing this? I tried synchronizing the LDAP and that didn't resolve the issue.
Hi @Kelsey_Collins If the user was "Jira", then it's the automated sync process that's taking the action. You said "Exchange" earlier and not AD. I'm not a Microsoft expert but is it possible the group(s) you checked are not the actual groups being imported by Jira? That would be the most likely source based on what I see in your posted information. Cheers!
I am a MSFT expert and MSFT ADMIN. More than likely the groups re-authenticate every day.
Exchange runs email and Active Directory runs the credential system. However, it seems that there is a new ghost user somewhere in your groups. I would check with the networking team or manager on the Active Directory side to see if the ghost user was created. The user credentials could be created/deleted just in JIRA and that change would be relevant just to the JIRA ADMIN team as they could allow a block of that user.
Were these users new employees, old employees, contractors, temp, or other staff? Was there a change in the Payroll system or something similar? Was there a change that needed to be transparent to you or your team from your Risk Management team? Did a job role change where the user did not need to know or use JIRA any longer?
Information regarding Users and User Directories including LDAP stuff is below in the KB:
I have run into a similar situation. Production and Test environment share the same AD connection. Filters path's etc. are all the same. However in the production environment users were removed from groups that should not have been removed. In the testing environment only very few changes are appearing, that can be tracked down to actual changes that were performed to the active directory.
@Kelsey_Collins have you been able to find out what caused the disruption in your system?
Okay I have been able to solve this without understand what originally caused the issue. But here is what I have done to the production environment:
