Not able to configure LDAP group lookup

Hi, I've followed https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Connecting+to+an+LDAP+Directory to configure LDAP for my evaluation JIRA. At section Membership Schema Settings it says that there should be two checkboxes to decide whether groups are retrieved from the user (memberOf) or looking up the group and then users (member).

My problem is that only one checkbox is there. Also, if I check LDAP configuration, it seems that both checks are false.

What's happening is that ALL my LDAP users are being synchronized into JIRA, exceeding by far number of licenses.

About the licenses, check if you set all the users to be part of the jira-users groups. All the users into this groups will count in the license.
Check this link to see how to put just some users inside this group to avoid the license problem.

Hope it helps!
