I just create a GitLab CE 11.8.0 install and configured LDAP authentication with AD. Here is the snippet of the LDAP configuration. Everything appears to be working and I can log in using AD credentials, however the admin_group configuration does not appear to be working. User that belongs to the “GitLab Admin” group are logged in as regular users instead. I do not see any errors in the logs so I am not clear on what it’s not liking.
gitlab_rails['ldap_enabled'] = true gitlab_rails['ldap_servers'] = YAML.load <<-'EOS' main: label: 'Domain AD' host: 'dc1.domain.com" port: 636 uid: 'sAMAccountName' encryption: 'simple_tls' verify_certificates: false bind_dn: 'email@example.com' password: 'Password1' active_directory: true base: 'CN=Users,DC=domain,DC=com' group_base: 'OU=GitLab Access,OU=Custom Security Groups,DC=domain,DC=com' admin_group: 'GitLab Admin' EOS
