Newbie user that didn't know config is space sensitive. I've formatted the config in notepad++ and because of that it was broken.



HI, can anyone plase help/walk me through configuring this one?

I've set config as per the gitlab.yml.example

    enabled: true
     label: 'LDAP'
     host: 'ourDC'
     port: 389
     uid: 'sAMAccountName'
     method: 'plain'
     bind_dn: 'CN=ouruser,CN=SA,CN=Users,DC=our,DC=domain'
     password: 'pwd'
     timeout: 10
     active_directory: true
     allow_username_or_email_login: true
     block_auto_created_users: true
     base: 'ou=IT,dc=our,dc=domain'
With this I get 502 error in browser

Disregard this post.

DId not know that config file is space sensitive, copied spaces from previous values and now it works :)

Apologies I didn't drop in sooner, although TBH, I wouldn't have been much help. My knowledge tends to be broad rather than deep. LDAP is certainly not a strength of mine, and I'm had limited experience with the GitLab appliance.

Thanks for posting back though, I'm almost certain that your comments will help out someone in the future!
