JIRA user direcotory synchronization problem


I have used excacly the same OpenLDAP configuration with JIRA like with Stash. Stash works perfectly however JIRA has some issues with "awardaritzen" user that prevents to synchronize user group membership. I've checked database and users are synced properly, groups also. The missing element is binding one and another.

Do you have any idea how to handle this one.

PS. I have double checked: Stash (works) has excacly the same LDAP configuration like JIRA.

I have migrated users to Active Directory and problem disappeared.

This probably might be a bug in Jira.

Try to exclude "awardaritzen" user with "User Object Filter" when defining directory. It may have incorrect name or something.

Tried, but no luck :\

I have same problem, do you solve it?
