    I have tried to set up a trial license of the miniOrange Kerberos authentication plugin for our Confluence site, but I’m not able to log on with it.

    Hi Andreas,

    Thanks for reaching out to us.

    This seems like an configuration issue, it could be while setting up the plugin configurations or while deploying files to tomcat.
    This is the reason you’re getting user not found error on login.

    If Confluence Server Address is then your Service Principal Name would be

    Follow keytab file generation procedure provided in the plugin.
    Copy .keytab file created on AD Domain Controller (DC) and deploy it on “confluence_home/conf/” directory.

    Once everything is setup successfully. Restart your Confluence Server and try login.

    Let me know if this helps.
