Description Jakub Hrozek 2014-07-02 12:33:37 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

This is a first part of providing account data for the Gnome account service and other customers.

As a first phase, we would write a new responder, that would provide a single method to get a custom attribute. Further care must be taken to ensure that only certain attributes might be read by certain consumers (polkit? tbd).

This code would be marked as experimental in upstream so that we could consider the API unstable and change it at will.

Comment 1 Jakub Hrozek 2014-07-02 15:18:18 UTC
The responder was added upstream:

Comment 2 Jakub Hrozek 2014-07-16 09:17:06 UTC
Jan, can you mark this bug as VERIFIED as part of your testing of adelton's Apache modules?

Comment 3 Jan Hutař 2014-07-18 09:32:48 UTC
Yes, we will test this bug, but in a scope of:


But I guess that is what is needed as SW consumes organization setting from IPA and so on.

Note - description of the feature:


Comment 5 Pavel Studeník 2014-07-29 12:58:52 UTC
I tested this extension on spacewalk 2.2. and it works correct. I verified it with following packages and extra attributes.

ldap_user_extra_attrs = mail, givenname, sn, ou

# spacewalk

# master

Comment 8 Kaushik Banerjee 2014-08-20 15:15:49 UTC
This is an internal fix to integrate with spacewalk. Sanity only testing from QE is only needed.

Nacking this bug so that it doesn't get added in the errata.
