One of our users cant login on confluence for two weeks. log says:

we use delegated LDAP directory first and secondly integral directory (with no user in it). all of our 10 users are authenticated from LDAP. 9 users can login only one user can't. user changed password nearly one month ago before the login error and connection to LDAP seems ok for other users.
How can we fix this?
Welcome to the forum.
I understand that you are using a delegated LDAP directory to authenticate users but one user cannot log in.
The error message you are reporting is the one I get in my log when I enter the wrong credentials. When I take away USE permission and log in I do not get that error, so we can discard USE permission as the cause.
As an aside, you mentioned you don't have any users in the Confluence Internal directory. It is recommended to keep an internal user with admin permissions in the internal directory in case you need to edit the LDAP directory or log in when the LDAP directory is unavailable for any reason. You may create the user under User Management and add it to the confluence-administrators group to give it super user permissions.
