Shibboleth & Mediawiki

Hi to all,

I'm here to know if any of you use Shibboleth as authentication method
on Mediawiki and this extension:

I successful configure it to allow access with Shibboleth, but seems
that the assignment of the groups doesn't work... :(

This is my configuration in the LocalSettings.php:

wfLoadExtension( 'Shibboleth' );

$wgShibboleth_Username = 'eppn';
$wgShibboleth_Email = 'mail';
$wgShibboleth_DisplayName = "cn";
$wgShibboleth_Logout_Base_Url = "";
$wgShibboleth_Logout_Target_Url = '/index.php/Pagina_principale';

$wgShibboleth_GroupMap = [ 'attr_name' => 'affiliation',
	                   'sysop' => 'member at',
			   'bureaucrat' => 'member at',

'affiliation' is the eduPersonScopedAffiliation attribute. That name
is what Shibboleth set by default.

I'm using the latest version of the extension provided here:

Thank for any help you can provide to solve this problem with groups.

Best Regards,
