Nested Groups do not work with Delegated Authentication Directory

    Description

      How to Reproduce:

      1. Create 2 groups in LDAP:
        • Group1
        • Group2
      2. Assign membership attributes to each Group as per below:
        • Group1
          • member: Group2
          • member: UserA
        • Group2
          • member: UserB
      3. Set up a Delegated Authentication Directory in Crowd, with the Use Nested Groups and Sync Group Memberships options checked
      4. Login to Crowd using UserB (Notice that only Group2 is synced, Group1 is not synced even though Group2 is child of Group1).
      5. Login with UserA this time (Notice that Group1 is also synced now, but if you try to check on the Nested Members of Group1, you'll find that only UserA is a Nested/Direct Member of Group1. What happened to UserB? UserB is only a member of Group2.

      This indicates that the Nested Groups functionality of Delegated Authentication Directory does not really work at all.
