Use admin account in JIRA with ldap enabled.

Hi all,

I have a JIRA with ldap integrated. For some reason there is synchronization problem and no user can access their account. I want to do directory sync using my admin account but even my admin account is not working for some reason and when I see the log it looks like it is actually searching account in ldap directories. Is there any way I can make my admin account working or sync the directory without login so that user can access their account.

If you have SSO enabled, you will have to disable it for the local admin account to work. If not,  try resetting the password.

Thank you Jobin, How can I know if SSO is enabled. How can I disable it?
