Description of problem:
In all the Users/Permissions tabs, there are nice icons distinguishing users from groups. It would be helpful to display them in user search results as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
oVirt 3.6 alpha 2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to Users tab, Add user dialog, search for a user so that both user(s) and group(s) are returned
no distiction is made
user or group icon is displayed as is Users/Permissions tab
Einav - do you consider this an RFE? Is that something to be done in 3.6?

this definitely an improvement, at least. should most likely be resolved post 3.6.
So after configuring LDAP in 3.6 and doing some test runs, I have come to the conclusion that adding the icon would be a minor improvement but not really solve the real problem.
The real problem is that the group result set doesn't line up with the user result set. So I would like to propose a change to the RFE to solve the real issue.
1. Add a radio button to allow the user to either pick group/users. It is highly likely the admin that is adding the user/group will know which one they are adding.
2. Based on the selection of the radio button change the grid columns to show the appropriate column information:
1. User name. Maybe add first name/last name in parenthesis?
2. principal name.
3. email address.
1. Group name.
Right now we are doing 2 queries to the LDAP server, one for the users and one for the groups. This proposal will eliminate one request per search, as we will be searching one or the other.
Let me know what you think of this proposal, it will add a little more work to the rfe, but will improve the experience significantly for the admin IMO
Hi Alexander, the suggestion sounds good - please note that I prefer to keep it consistent with the view of the main Users grid.
The main Users grid currently displays both Users and Groups [http://i.imgur.com/6YGmCPM.png]. However, I've just noticed that for a group (e.g. "Everyone"), the group name is displayed in the 'First Name' column (just like in the Add Permission dialog), which is a bit misleading.
It may make sense to apply your radio-buttons solution to both the Add Permission dialog and the Users main grid - but for the main grid, need to see how this will "play nice" with the Search mechanism (we have a similar functionality in e.g. the Disks main tab that we may be able to use as a reference). Can you please look into that?
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.
Instead of icons in one data grid, the Users -> Add dialog now has a radio button with choices User / Group which splits the search for users or groups only.
User option then sets the results table header to First Name, Last name, User Name.
Group option sets the header to Group Name, Display Name.
