Description of problem:
The EXTERNAL auth source only gets created when the first user gets auto-created based on external authentication (enabled with --foreman-ipa-authentication=true). That's why the admin will not even see the tab to specify external group mapping when creating/editing user groups.
The EXTERNAL auth source should either be always present, or created when --foreman-ipa-authentication=true is used.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.0 but the same behaviour in 6.1 as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable external authentication via IdM using --foreman-ipa-authentication=true.
2. Attempt to define mapping of external groups to Satellite (Foreman) user groups.
Not possible, the tab is there because the EXTERNAL auth source is not there.
It should be possible even before the first externally-authenticated user has logged in / was auto-populated in the user database.
Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/19064 from this bug
Upstream bug assigned to mhulan
Moving this bug to POST for triage into Satellite 6 since the upstream issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/19064 has been resolved.
We can now define the mappings of external groups in Satellite6 under user groups.
External groups tab now exists even before a user logs in, after "--foreman-ipa-authentication=true" is run.
Will be attaching screenshots shortly to this bug.
VERIFIED With sat6.4.0-snap9
