So, just to clarify, you have a LDAPUser, who is part of LDAPGroup inside
your LDAP Directory, and you create LDAPGroup in the JDBC extension and
assign permissions to LDAPGroup to access connections?  In your file do you have ldap-group-base-dn specified?  You'll
need this property enabled in order for the LDAP extension to actually
enumerate groups within your LDAP directory - otherwise it will not look
for user groups at all.

Yes, this should work.  There is a JIRA issue out there that deals with a
slightly nuanced version of this scenario, so I want to make sure I
understand what you're trying to do that isn't apprearing to work.  Here's
the JIRA issue:

In that issue, the matching user account in JDBC is being assigned to a
JDBC group, and the permissions are not being passed through because the
user is authenticated with LDAP and not with JDBC.
