Yes but you need to ensure that in the LDAP Permissions, the Read/Write option is enabled.

However your user in the LDAP need to have the modification permission in the AD server.


No Viana - I have something like this , the username in Jira at the moment is Form100JIRAServiceAc and in AD , it is Form100JIRAService . I have no idea how this happened ?

Well Guilherme , I just deleted the old user id in AD and created a new one. Thank you .
