Our users are not locally managed in Confluence, but rather centrally with LDAP – can Space Privacy still be used?

Yes, the app includes LDAP users as long as this was configured in the Confluence administration. This also applies to Atlassian Crowd or Jira Servers as a user directory.

However, it is absolutely necessary for local groups to be allowed, as Space Privacy creates groups for every extranet space. Users that are assigned to extranet spaces, are added to their corresponding groups.
