LDAP Auto-approve Account Creation Not Working?

Hi all,

We’re running GitLab CE 14.3.3 with LDAP authentication which all appears to be behaving fine however it appears that at some point, and we’re not entirely sure when, new accounts are requiring admin approval?

We have allow_username_or_email_login set to False and both Sign-up Enabled (and in turn Require admin approval for new sign-ups) are both disabled. There are also no user caps set.

Hopefully I’m missing something really obvious here but whatever I do I can’t seem to get it to just automatically approve these accounts on creation.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated!
