Can I get LDAP groups into Crucible?

Is there any way to import LDAP groups into Crucible? Looking at all the configuration fields, it appears that I can only import users from LDAP and have to create groups manually. Can I link up Crucible to another Atlassian service that does support LDAP groups and get them from there? Is there any external API I could run to synchronize LDAP groups and Crucible groups?

Hi Brent.

Unfortunately LDAP groups are not supported within fisheye/crucible.

If you have Crowd - and after configure CROWD as the Authentication in Crucible -

Or you can also use JIRA - and after configure JIRA as the Authentication in Crucible -

Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks. We do have Jira, but I'm stuck on step 2.2.b in the url you provided ( There is no section titled "JIRA or Crowd Authentication" on our instance. Two things to note:

  • We are using Crucible stand alone without Fisheye.
  • We are using version: 2.7.10 Build:20120119115142 2012-01-19.

Just an update, FishEye/Crucible 4.0 brings full support for LDAP groups and multiple user directories. See for details.

Hi Brent.

To configure Crowd for your Crucible you can follow this:

  • Go to Administration > Security Settings > Authentication
  • Under Authentication Settings > Setup JIRA/Crowd Authentication
  • Authentication against > a Jira Instance

Then configure it according to your environment and it should work properly.

Please let me know how it goes.

Sorry, but "Setup JIRA/Crowd Authentication" is not an option for me. Under "Security Settings --> Authentication" there these sections:

  • Global Permissions

  • Built-in

  • Usernames

  • User List Visibility

  • Email Visibility

  • LDAP Authentication settings

  • Security settings

Do I need to install a plugin or something else to get that Crowd Authentication? Or is this something only available with Fisheye, not stand alone Crucible?

2.2. To set up the JIRA user directory in FishEye:

  1. Go to your FishEye administration screen.
    1. Click Authentication (under 'Security Settings').
    2. Click Setup JIRA/Crowd authentication. Note, if LDAP authentication has already been set up, you will need to remove that before connecting to JIRA for user management

More detail info refer to

Anyone know if a Feature Request for this? I filed it in FE, hope it's not a dup

Is there a way to import groups from Crowd into Crucible/FishEye?  Right now, when I attempt to specify groups in the application configuration within Crowd, Crucible/FishEye will import the users within the groups, but groups themselves will not be imported.
