When I sets group_bind = true, Trac returns an error:

You may enter a password for your bind user.
See LdapPlugin#AuthenticatedLDAPconnections

group_bind = true
bind_user = user
bind_passwd = passwd

Here is also a patch to warn user when using bind with bind_user only (missing bind_passwd):

  • ldapplugin/

    637637                                       (protocol,, self.port))
    638638            self._ds.protocol_version = ldap.VERSION3
    639639            if self.bind:
    640                 if not self.bind_user:
     640                if not self.bind_user or not self.bind_passwd:
    641641                    raise TracError("Bind enabled but credentials not defined")
    642642                head = self.bind_user[:self.bind_user.find(',')]
    643643                if ( head.find('=') == -1 ):
