Synchronization user's groups with LDAP


Can you suggest with group synchronization problem.

I have following config in LDAP:

main-group (groups subgroup1 and subgroup2, user6 are in main-group)

| subgroup1 (user1 and user2 are in subgroup1)

| | user1

| | user2

| subgroup2 (group subgroup3 and user5 are in subgroup2)

| | subgroup3 (user3 and user4 are in subgroup3)

| | | user3

| | | user4

| | user5

| user6

So, i want to create configuration for LDAP user directory on main-group. Moreover, all JIRA users from this user directory should have *main-group* as a JIRA group. Any nested groups for main-group should not exist inside JIRA.

For example, for listened above LDAP structure after synchronization, JIRA should have user1, user2, user3, user4, user5 and user6 users with a main-group group.

Ki Nik!

Since we are talking about groups, you can create a filter using groupSearchFilter. Then you can set the groups you want the users to be imported to. This approach is good when we have a lot of users and want just a few to login.

Since in your example you just have a few users, your users will be all imported without the groups, unless you set the Nested Groups option when configuring your LDAP in Jira.

For more information about linking LDAP with Jira, you may check this document.

Hope it helps!
