Bamboo and LDAP integration

I'm following the instructions for integrating LDAP for read-only group management from our LDAP server.

(Bamboo 3.3)

The configuration checks out using the paddle utility

# java -jar paddle-2.0.jar debug
Connected to server successfully


TEST 1: Search and list 10 users




TEST 2: Search and list 10 groups


The docs indicate that after doing this I should see the LDAP groups and users on the user management screens though I don't see them. I don't see anything in the log either that Bamboo is attempting to go out to LDAP to fetch users and groups. Am I missing something here with regard to configuration?

I had to restart Bamboo before it recognized my changes to the config files. Also, make sure you don't name your admin account the same as an account actually in LDAP or it won't have administrator access.
