      Description

      Confluence doesn't seem to currently support nested groups with LDAP External User Management. We'd like to have a structure in LDAP (we use Active Directory) such as:

      WikiUsers
      Information Systems (IS Head Person, IS Assistant)
      Communications (Person 1, Person 2 ..)
      Infrastructure (Person 2, Person 5 ...)
      HR (HR exec)
      Payroll (another person)
      Leave Management (another person, someone else)

      Such that if USE permission is granted to a particular group, all members of that group and members of child groups. This would also need to apply when granting permissions for Spaces and Pages.
