In parallel to our investigation in FreeIPA, I think it would be beneficial to
either check if Jira can be configured so that it does the synchronization in
one LDAP connection instead of connecting 1000 of times to do the searches.

If this is not possible, I think that a bug should be filed so that they can
fix it eventually in future versions.

Ok, it seems that the problem is indeed a slow LDAP bind with FreeIPA. It is
important to note that it will always be slower that simple auth LDAP Binds
with a plain LDAP instance as FreeIPA has several DS plugin hooked to the Bind
operation which provides some of the functionality.

Our current plan is to profile the bind operation and see if some of our DS
plugin does not take more time than it should. Hopefully, we will find some
suboptimal or unnecessary check which could be optimized and which would
improve the overall result.
