By default the user directories configured in Confluence (ADMINISTRATION > USERS & SECURITY > User Directories) are used to fill the user profiles. Alternatively, you can define a separate LDAP resource here (ADMINISTRATION > CUSTOM USER PROFILE > DATA SOURCES). The CUP add-on will then use this resource exclusively to fill the user profiles. A common use case would be to manage your users (name, password) and groups (confluence-admins) in a user directory managed by Confluence, but maintain user profile data (position, location etc.) in a different directory.
Choose the LDAP where the CUP will fetch the user field data
Configure a separate LDAP connection
The settings are pretty much the same as configuring a user directory in Confluence.
Please note: The configured LDAP access is strictly read-only.
Host name of the server running LDAP
Bind DN or user
User to log in to LDAP
email@example.com or cn=user,dc=domain,dc=name.
Root node in LDAP from which to search for users and groups
Unique user attribute representing Confluence user name
User Update Search Filter
Filter for updating users. To use the configured date (see section LDAP sync) insert place holder [last_sync_timestamp]
Format: dd-MM-yyyy HH:mm:ss, e.g. 23-05-2015 15:00:00 The next LDAP sync will update profiles of all users whose data was updated after this given date. Leave blank to synchronize all users.
Pattern for last modification
Time pattern to format last modification date in LDAP user update search query. The pattern should match the time pattern used by the connected LDAP server.
