I want to install the community edition of mattermost for our trade school class of it specialists. My idea was to use a LDAP-Server, so that we can add other usefull applications later like gitlab for coding. I saw a LDAP section in the configuration-file. After some testing, the authentication using LDAP was not working. So I did some research and found out that according to the doc this feature is only avaliable in the enterprise edition.
This would result in licences costs of $600 per year, which is not suiteable for us. But I was wondering that the configuration file has a ldap section in the community edition when its not avaliable there.
So is LDAP working in mattermost community edition and I simply did mistakes in the configuration?
Or is the documentation right, so that it’s only enabled in enterprise and the configuration file is shared for both community and enterprise edition?
