Fixed In Version: ipa-4.4.0-1.el7
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
IdM now supports OTP generation in the Web UI Identity Management (IdM) now supports one-time password (OTP) generation when adding a host in the Web UI. Select the "Generate OTP" check box in the "Add host" dialog. After adding the host, a window displays the generated OTP. You can use this password to join the host to the domain. This procedure simplifies the process and provides a strong OTP. To override the OTP, navigate to the host's details page, click, "Action" and select "Reset One-Time-Password".

Description David Jaša 2014-09-26 09:19:21 UTC
Description of problem:
Users are quite certain not to come up with random (high-entropy) passwords, let alone with high-entropy one time passwords. IMHO IPA should at least offer to generate OTPs for host enrollment in the UI, or if there are no backward-compatibility concerns, use generation as a default method with custom OTPs as a user-requested fallback

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ipa-server-3.0.0-37.el6.x86_64 / RHEL 6.5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a host in the Web UI
2. set an Enrollment OTP for the host

Actual results:
user is requested to type and retype the password

Expected results:
user should be offered with generated OTP by default

Additional info:

It is possible to request a random one-time password when adding a host in the CLI, so I guess it should be possible in the UI as well.

Comment 3 Martin Kosek 2015-10-07 12:42:23 UTC
This Bugzilla is a feature request and as such is not a good fit for IdM in RHEL-6 where IdM server is only being stabilized and new functionality is not being added.

I am thus moving the Bugzilla to RHEL-7.x series. When/if the RFE is implemented and you are interested in having it backported to IdM in RHEL-6, please clone a Bugzilla to RHEL-6 and provide business justification so that we can re-consider.
