sso for gitlab with crowd

I use crowd sever 3.7, gitlab CE 12.4

Now I want to integrate crowd with gitlab and be able to SSO

I configured an application in crowd

And modified the gitlab.rb file

The contents are as follows:

###! Docs:
gitlab_rails['omniauth_enabled'] = true
gitlab_rails['omniauth_allow_single_sign_on'] = ['crowd']
#gitlab_rails['omniauth_sync_email_from_provider'] = 'saml'
#gitlab_rails['omniauth_sync_profile_from_provider'] = ['crowd','saml']
#gitlab_rails['omniauth_sync_profile_attributes'] = ['crowd']
##gitlab_rails['omniauth_auto_sign_in_with_provider'] = 'crowd'
gitlab_rails['omniauth_block_auto_created_users'] =false
#gitlab_rails['omniauth_auto_link_ldap_user'] = true
#gitlab_rails['omniauth_auto_link_saml_user'] = true
gitlab_rails['omniauth_external_providers'] = ['crowd']
# gitlab_rails['omniauth_allow_bypass_two_factor'] = ['google_oauth2']
# gitlab_rails['omniauth_providers'] = [
# {
# "name" => "google_oauth2",
# "app_id" => "YOUR APP ID",
# "app_secret" => "YOUR APP SECRET",
# "args" => { "access_type" => "offline", "approval_prompt" => "" }
# }
# ]

gitlab_rails['omniauth_providers'] = [
"name" => "crowd",
"args" => {
"crowd_server_url" => "http://localhost:8095/crowd",
"application_name" => "gitlab",
"application_password" => "gitlab"


Now you can login into gitlab with the account in crowd, but when I login into jira or crowd,I must login gitlab again

Who can tell me what else to configure?

Looks like the situation related to the merging of CE and EE or token cleaning on Crowd side.

Could you check the tokenisation on debug mode on Crowd side, please?
