    Getting wrong results using glShaderStorageBinding

    Hi ,

    I want to use glShaderStorageBinding to bind my buffer in compute shader. I am using 2 buffers , one to write data and one to read data, and binding the buffer objects using glShaderStorageBinding. But getting wrong result. below is my compute shader:
    Code :
    layout (local_size_x = 32, local_size_y = 1, local_size_z = 1) in;
    layout(std140) buffer iB {
        int ibuf[];
    layout(std140) buffer oB {
        int obuf[];
    void main() {
    	uint LocalInvocationIndex = gl_LocalInvocationIndex;
    	g_out.obuf[LocalInvocationIndex] = g_in.ibuf[LocalInvocationIndex];

    Binding buffers as :
    Code :
            GLint i=0, j=0, Ibuffer[32], *Obuffer;
    	GLuint shader_buffer[2], buffer_index;
    	for(i=0; i<32; i++)	
            Obuffer=(GLint*) malloc(32*sizeof(GLint));
    	glGenBuffers(2, shader_buffer, nResult);
    	glBindBuffer(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, shader_buffer[0]);
    	glBufferData(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, sizeof(Ibuffer), Ibuffer, GL_DYNAMIC_DRAW);
    	glBindBuffer(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, shader_buffer[1], nResult);
    	glBufferData( GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, 32*sizeof(GLint), NULL, GL_DYNAMIC_READ);
    	GLint x;
    	buffer_index=glGetProgramResourceIndex(computeshaderprogObj, GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BLOCK, "iB");
    	printf("buffer_index = %d GL_MAX_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER_BINDINGS = %d", buffer_index, x);
    	glShaderStorageBlockBinding(computeshaderprogObj, buffer_index, 0);
    	buffer_index=glGetProgramResourceIndex(computeshaderprogObj, GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BLOCK, "oB");
    	printf("buffer_index = %d", buffer_index);
    	glShaderStorageBlockBinding(computeshaderprogObj, buffer_index, 1);
    	glBindBufferBase(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, 0, shader_buffer[0]);
    	glBindBufferBase(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, 1, shader_buffer[1]);
            glDispatchCompute(4, 1, 1);
            glBindBuffer(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, shader_buffer[1]);
            Obuffer = (GLint*)glMapBufferRange(GL_SHADER_STORAGE_BUFFER, 0, sizeof(GLint)*32, GL_MAP_READ_BIT); 
            // Reading the buffer

    using opengl 4.3.
    Default binding in shader works and return correct result as 1, but I dont want to use the default binding in shader.
    The shader and code is compiling properly. Also it also returning buffer index as 0 and 1 respectively. But it is always returning 0 value after reading the Obuffer. Do we need to do something else to bind the buffers?
