we use confluence 3.5 together with LDAP user directory. User and groups are synchronized but the groups do not show any member.
We are able to login with our LDAP accounts but without any group membership.
Our LDAP is a OpenLDAP system.
After synchronization confluence has all groups and members from LDAP, but groups don't contain any member.
Why does confluence not load the members from the member-Attribute?
Thanks in advance.
How do you mean "member-Attribute"? AFAIK the member attribute for OpenLDAP is uniqueMember. If you have member, you need to change that in in Membership Schema Settings.
Can you double-check the actual attribute in your schema, and the settings in jira.
Jamie, thank you for answer.
I set next parameters in LDAP User Directory in section "Membership Schema Settings":
Group Members Attribute: memberUid
User Membership Attribute: uid
Use the User Membership Attribute: When finding the user's group membership
And after this settings members didn't load in group.
What does the ldif for a group look like. does it have attributes called memberUid?
My settings are:
Group Members Attribute: uniqueMember
and the checkbox unchecked. You may have your openldap set up different from mine of course, so only looking at the ldif for a group will tell us.
Hrm I have the full DN for the users - perhaps it needs that? And do you have the revese lookup working, such that if you look at the ldif for a user it shows the groups they're in? I guess that needs to be tree if you have that checkbox checked.
I'm afraid I'm out of ideas, so you might need Atlassian support. But I wonder if it requires the full DN of the users rather than just the uid.
ldif of user:
displayName: daymon Caulfield
cn: Daymon Caulfield
The posixGroup (memberUid) and groupOfNames (member) are mutually exclusive object classes. memberUid is just a login name - not an entire DN the way member is.
The question for Atlassian support how they support the posixGroup config if they even do.
Has anyone figured this out yet?
