LDAP Confluence

First you have to make sure the user names match. If not start renaming or create the same users in LDAP.

Once the same users are there in LDAP/AD, give them the same groups memberships and then create a new user directory in Confluence to connect to AD/LDAP. You can then put the new directory above the internal user directory and everything should work fine.

That is the theory. Test it first ;)
