Hey Akbar,

Bein honest, Crowd will give you better SSO experience and will be able to also manage the users. However, in this case we can see that you're using LDAP to authenticate, which should not be related to the Crowd usage. Only if you use Crowd too, so the authentication would pass through both applications.

Can you give us some more details on the log files from your JIRA instance (JIRA Home/logs folder), so we can see what could be happening?

PS: More information on JIRA with LDAP in this doc:
