      Description

      As explained by Thomas, "the LDAP authenticator take a string and expect it to be the full name, that's all"

      While in the ldap admin application, in the group mapping, if you specify a group name without prefix it doesn't act like you could expect to : Without prefix in the configuration, for example the xwiki group GroupName, the xwiki group is created to Main.GroupName and member is put in there as expected. At this point we could expect the system has successfully mapped the ldap group to Main.GroupName, which is not.

      As if the user is removed from the ldap group, Main.GroupName will never be updated.

      For the update to happen correctly you should have explicit full group name in config as Main.GroupName or XWiki.GroupName

      So I would suggest to enforce the xwiki group name field to full name (Space.Name) so there would be no misleading behavior or head hatches

      Cheers
