Confluence and JIRA memberOf problem against OpenLDAP

I’ve just spent hours trying to figure out filters for either users or groups that would allow Confluence and JIRA to authenticate against OpenLDAP only those users that had “member” attribute for respective groups, all in vain. Both Confluence and JIRA simply ignore group membership unless “memberOf” attribute is used during the search. But simply turning the point around works – do not try to force Confluence or JIRA to use “member” attribute found in groups, but simply add “memberOf” attributes to each user you’d like in respective groups.
