Jira LDAP Integration with freeIPA retrieving group memberships


Hi all,


I am working on integrating a Jira instance with a freeIPA instance trough LDAP to retrieve all the users being stored in the freeIPA user directory. I can manage to retrieve all the user, but I cannot seem to be able to retrieve the user groups/memberships, the "Test get user's memberships : Failed" seems to fail all the time with no particular info in the jira-software/logs/atlassian-jira.log file. No luck finding any other resources online, has anybody encountered such issues if so what did you do? 


The schema I am using is bellow :

Directory type : LDAP, OpenLDAP (have also attempted to use LDAP with internal authentication, which doesn't give me any groups either)

base DN:cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=example,dc=io

Read Only, with Local groups checked and adding to jira-software -users by default.

Use schema - all user info is being retrieved, so no issue

Group Schema

Group Object Class : groupOfNames

Group Object Filter:(objectclass=groupOfNames)

Group Name attribute: cn

Group Description attribute : description


Membership schema

Group Memebers attribute : Member

User Membership attribute: memberOf


Example of my freeIPA user object and group object bellow:

nobody has encountered this? 

I'm pretty certain this requires that the connector is authenticated with Username/password in the Server Settings.
