      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Atlassian status as of October 26, 2018

      I’m excited to let you know that the latest release of Crowd Data Center features the ability for you to delegate user admin management to space admins, with the ‘delegated group level admin’ feature.

      For those of you who aren’t familiar with Crowd Data Center, it offers one place to manage your users, groups and directories and easily integrate your identity infrastructure across all self-hosted Atlassian products

      I’m leaving this suggestion open, as I appreciate that this only provides a solution to those of you who currently have, or are considering investing in Crowd. However, to set expectations, this isn’t something we’re currently planning on working on within Confluence Server.

      It would be good if there is an option for an admin to select which user directory the new user should be added into on adding new user.

      Possible scenarios
      • Adding a new user to INTERNAL (or any non-first) directory is not possible if DELEGATING directory is the first in user directories list.
      • Adding a new user to multiple user directories is not possible. Perhaps an admin wanted to have few users added to DELEGATING and INTERNAL directory. Reason could be that when LDAP is down/inaccessible, these users still can login using their INTERNAL passwords.
      Workaround

      Confluence Admin can swap the order of User Directories since currently in Confluence, the new user will get created in the first directory with write access rights listed in User Directories.

      Further finding

      JIRA has done this well, see JRA-23933. In JIRA, a dropdown option now will appear once there is an INTERNAL and at least one DELEGATING directory:
