Only synchronize certain groups like "confluence-users" across to database confluence makes use of.

I know this feature request was logged and declined, but this was 7 years ago. 


Does anyone know of any way to restrict the synchronization to only a certain group like the subject suggests? We are currently synchronizing ALL users from our jira user directory.

Has anyone been able to do this? 


Kind regards,
