A collaboration tool such as Confluence is nothing without its users, using the tool for collaboration. In this chapter we will learn different ways to add users to our Confluence instance and learn how to manage those users.
We will also learn that in a corporate situation, where user management often already exists, it is very easy to configure Confluence to make use of that existing user infrastructure.
In this chapter we will cover:
Manually adding users to Confluence
Administrating your users
Managing user groups
Connecting to an external user directory
