Description xjia 2013-12-17 06:26:02 UTC
Description of problem:
If server does not configure LDAP, user should not allow to create LDAP group.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.bkr group-create --root-password="Test@2013"  --ldap --display-name="test12" test12

Actual results:
[root@dhcp-65-142 ~]# bkr group-create --root-password="Test@2013"  --ldap --display-name="test12" test12
XML-RPC fault: <type 'exceptions.TypeError'>:argument 1 must be string, not None

Expected results:
Give some information like “LDAP group cannot be created, please contact with administrator” instead of faulting.

Additional info:

Comment 4 Anwesha Chatterjee 2017-07-07 06:21:08 UTC
Upon running steps to reproduce, the client throws the following exception:

XML-RPC fault: <type 'exceptions.AssertionError'>:

And I get this stacktrace error on the server:

Verified by temporarily setting:


on the server and then trying to create an LDAP group:

$ bkr group-create --ldap ldaptest
XML-RPC fault: <class 'bkr.common.bexceptions.BX'>:LDAP is not enabled
