Let's assume that you want to:

  • Allow self-registration (automatic signup) of new users in your 'Customers' directory via JIRA, and
  • Disable self-registration via Confluence.

Here's how you would set the directory-level and application-level permissions in Crowd.

  1. At directory level, enable the 'Add User' permission (and any other permissions you want):
    1. In the Crowd Administration Console, click the 'Directories' tab in the top navigation bar.
    2. Select the 'Customers' directory.
    3. Click the 'Permissions' tab.
    4. Select the 'Add User' check-box.


  2. At application level, make sure the 'Add User' permission is enabled for the JIRA application:
    1. Click the 'Applications' tab in the top navigation bar.
    2. Click the 'View' link next to the JIRA application.
    3. In the 'View Application' screen, click the 'Permissions' tab.
    4. Select the 'Customers' directory.
    5. Select the 'Add User' check-box.


  3. At application level, disable the 'Add User' permission the Confluence application:
    1. Click the 'Applications' tab in the top navigation bar.
    2. Click the 'View' link next to the Confluence application.
    3. Click the 'Permissions' tab.
    4. Select the 'Customers' directory.
    5. Deselect the 'Add User' check-box.

In summary:
With the above application permissions, a person will be able to sign up for a user account via JIRA and this user will be created in the 'Customers' directory, but they will not be able to sign up for an account via Confluence.
