I am trying to configure RT::Authen::ExternalAuth. I have configured it as per the perldocs’. I am confident I have the configuration correct as I just used their examples. However when I try and log in with a non-existent RT users, but one that exists in LDAP, it does not create the user.

[362] [Thu Jan  7 01:19:10 2016] [error]: FAILED LOGIN for jdemarchi from (/opt/rt4/sbin/../lib/RT/Interface/Web.pm:810)

However, when I add the user to RT, it pre-populates the users information showing that authInfo is working as expected.

Here are the relevant parts of my RT_SiteConfig.pm

# LDAP Auth
Set( $ExternalAuthPriority, ["My_LDAP"] );
Set( $ExternalInfoPriority, ["My_LDAP"] );
Set( $UserAutocreateDefaultsOnLogin, { Privileged => 1 } );
Set($AutoCreateNonExternalUsers, 1);

I know my ExternalSettings section is correct as it is talking to LDAP for user info.

Any help would be great!

Many thanks,
