Nobody can create groups or project or edit permissions

Problem to solve

I’ve installed the latest gitlab-ee version (without license), created an admin user and then configured ldap authentication (active directory).

Admin user can’t create groups (permission denied), can’t create projects (404), the “+” button only show “new snippet” and I have no permission settings under the admin area.


I’ve basically changed nothing in the configuration file (confgured ldap, smtp and nothing more).



  • GitLab 16.10.0-ee oin RHEL

gitlab:check and other maintenance checks are all ok

Any suggestion?
