The "Connecting to external user directories" page has two links to instructions for using LDAP: Connecting to an existing LDAP directory and Delegating authentication to an LDAP directory. BOTH of these links point back to the page they are on, which has no such instructions on it!
So, how do you actually connect Bamboo 6.8 to LDAP? I did find the page Integrating Bamboo with LDAP, but it didn't work for me - too many duplicate group names at different levels of the LDAP hierarchy.
I guess I'll have to play with the user and group search filters.
But the missing documentation links are annoying.
We are sorry for this confusion, the documents need to be updated. I will escalate this to our tech writers team so we can fix those links.
One year ago Bamboo had this change to include the Crowd embedded plugin. It is the same plugin already present in Jira (just a different version). It allows us to have multiple directories connected with Bamboo (which are enabled, disabled, ordered through the UI).
Yes, the page you should use as a reference now is Integrating Bamboo with LDAP - Atlassian Documentation.
All errors connecting to LDAP traced to Java OutOfMemoryError - a 2 GB heap isn't sufficient to handle our humongous LDAP tree (400,000 groups, 100,000 users). I still see performance problems however and am trying to tune the group and user search filters to get only the relevant parts of the tree. Also, I need to change the refresh interval - it seems to be 10 seconds and I need it to be 20 minutes.
G’day Community! As we gear up to introduce Bamboo Data Center to the world, we wanted to make sure that we shared a bit more about Bamboo, the product. Our team has put together an overview video ...
