BitBucket LDAP and Nested Groups Not Working


I'm trying to get LDAP AD nested groups to work for our Bitbucket Project Creator role but it's not working.  Users can logon, but they have no permissions to create projects.

I used this article as my guide, which says what I'm trying to do is possible (although the article is for Confluence):

1.  We have a Domain Users group in AD with all users in the domain

2.  We have a Bitbucket-PO group also,  Domain Users is a group member of the Bitbucket-PO group.

3.  We have nested groups enabled

Our scenario is the exact same scenario as Example 2 in the article.

According to the article, a member of the Domain Users group will inherit permissions assigned to the Bitbucket-PO group.  But that is not working, we get the screen that only allows us to create personal projects.

However, if I add an AD account manually to the Bitbucket-PO group in AD, I get the permissions I need.  So it appears that it doesn't like nested AD groups but flat groups work fine.

Am I missing something?

Can you share the group and user filter you are using in Crowd ?

We are using several level of nesting in Active Directory and it works perfectly fine in Jira, Bitbucket and Confluence. So I am quiet sure that there is something to do with Group or user filter.
