      Atlassian Update - 30 January 2024

      Hi everyone,

      This is Charlie from the Confluence team. Thank you for your interest in this suggestion.

      After reviewing this ticket and weighing it up against our other opportunities, we have decided to transition it to 'Gathering interest' as we don't have plans to work on this in the near term.

      Please continue to vote and watch this suggestion if it is important to your team, as we regularly review highly ranked tickets as potential roadmap items.

      To learn more about our recent investments in Confluence Data Center, please check our public roadmap and our dashboards containing recently resolved issues, and current work and future plans.

      Kind regards,
      Confluence Data Center

      Depending on group membership users may (or may not) see users in their own or in other groups in the People Directory.

      Scenario example:

      • Internal people should be able to see all users (from their department and/or project group) as well as all customers that they are responsible for / ideally grouped per company/department/...
      • External users (customers) from company XYZ should be able to see (some) internal users (i.e. those responsible for their project), in addition all users from their own organization (members in the group XYZ) and possibly some users from another company that is utilizing the same product.

      Above could be solved by smart grouping of people, provided that the access to the People Directory is "better" configurable.

      Note: The "Shared Mode" setting in the General Configuration does not solve the issue - this is an all-or-nothing approach, it would be highly desirable to have a fine-grained controlled access to the People Directory in one of the future Confluence releases.
