User Object Filter for group membership - FedoraDS / 389 DS

Hy there

I'm struggling to the user object filter fo our 389 directory server. I set it up using the fedoraDS type and so far all works (except the strange behaviour of syncs not working every ~3d time).

But until now I wasn't able to filter the user object to match a specifig group. I know for MS Active Directory it works like this


But since the "memberOf" attribute is the MS way of ldap implement/interpretation I have to find another way.

Can JIRA go the other way, searching a group for memberUid attribute values instead of searching the user for the memberOf attribute?

btw: I konw about the plugins available for memberOf on 389ds but our frontend also doesn't understand it.

Thanks for any help suggestions

Thanks for the answer.

As mentioned, I know about this plugin, but our frontend (LAM / phpldapadmin) does not understand it out of the box / does not call this plugin when adding a user to a group.

So, confluence cannot search group members based on the group and then compare with users?

Do I really have to have all users inside my ldap search (and so inside wiki search, even though they do not consume license) only because we don't got the memberOf attribute?

Hi Sandro,

Usually we just use "": "(objectclass=posixGroup)" as filter for FedoraDS.

But since you need to filter, I suggest you to use the the memberOf plugin for FedoraDS.

Hope it helps!

Kind Regards
