I have got a confluence 3.5 setup with the following directories enabled:
My assumption was, that I could manage confluence-only groups on the confluence system for certain editor-management (not company organisation relevant groups). I am able to create new confluence groups but get the following error if I try to add members to it:
Could not add user 'john.doe' as a member of group 'management-editor'. Check your server logs for more information.

Question: According to the exception message: why does the group has to exist already in the directory of the user?
Thank you very much for any hint.

Hi, I had the same expectation : being able to add LDAP users to local groups. And I had the same problem. I found a note that was useful and helped me solve the problem:
The note mentions 2 queries : in my case, I just applied query #1, I restarted the server and it was enough.
Please make sure to test in a development platform first,
Best regards, Lionel
