Is all users below OU=Users,OU=Branch1,... or do you have users in other
OUs as well?

Also, what should be used as the login name?

The man page for squid_ldap_auth has a couple of good examples to start
from. I would recommend using the search mode as this is most flexible on
both questions above.

Group lookups is done by the squid_ldap_group helper.

Start with authentication. When authentication is running fine then move
into authorization using groups. The path to group based authorization
when authentication is correctly configured is pretty simple, but if
attemting both before you know authentication is running correctly may be
somewhat confusing.
