@Felipe, by any chance can you re-test with the fix for LP: #1850634
which is in bionic-proposed?

Bug description:
  [Impact]
  When using the keystone LDAP backend, changing user_id_attribute breaks group mapping. This is because the _dn_to_id() method only calculated the uid to be the first RDN of the DN. _dn_to_id() is updated in the fix to also deal with the case where the uid is set to a different attribute.

  [Test Case]
  See details in comment #25: https://bugs.launchpad.net/keystone/+bug/1782922/comments/25

  [Regression Potential]
  The patch takes a minimal approach to the fix and includes unit tests to help ensure the patched code doesn't regress. The patches have landed in all upstream releases back to stable/queens which helps get even more exposure with upstream reviews, gate testing and real deployments.

  [Original Description]

  Env Details:
  Openstack version: Queens (17.0.5)
  OS: CentOS 7.5
  LDAP: Active Directory, Windows Server 2012R2

  We changed the user_id_attribute to sAMAccountName when configuring
  keystone. [ user_id_attribute = "sAMAccountName" ;
  group_members_are_ids = False ]. Unfortunately this bricks the group
  mapping logic in keystone.

  The relevant code in keystone:
  `list_users_in_group` [1] -> gets all groups from the LDAP server, and then calls `_transform_group_member_ids`. `_transform_group_member_ids` tries to match the user ids (for posixGroups e.g.) or the DN. However DN matching does not match the full DN. It rather takes the first RDN of the DN and computes the keystone user id [2]. The first RDN in Active Directory is the "CN". While the user-create part honors the user_id_attribute and takes "sAMAccountName" in our configuration. The generated user-ids in keystone now do not match anymore and hence group mapping is broken.

  A fix could be looking up the user by the DN received from the
  'member' attribute of a given group and compare the configured
  'user_id_attribute' of the received ldap user id and the in keystone
  stored user id. A quick fix could also be to mention that behavior in
  the documentation.
