Description Evgeni Golov 2015-11-20 12:16:06 UTC
Description of problem:
Running Satellite 6.1.4 (but also reproduced this on 6.1.3) and Firefox 42.0.
Due to lazyness admin/changeme is saved as credentials for the Satellite URL in Firefox. When editing LDAP authentication, Firefox prepopulates the Account username field with "admin" (if the field is empty, as it is when LDAP allows anonymous bind).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Satellite 6.1.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. save login credentials in firefox
2. go to Administer → LDAP authentication
3. create a new LDAP or edit an existing one that has an empty account username

Actual results:
account username is set to the stored satellite user by Firefox

Expected results:
account username is empty

Additional info:
Marking the field in LDAP settings as autocomplete="off" might help, but I did not test it.

Moving 6.2 bugs out to sat-backlog.

Comment 2 Peter Gervase 2017-02-01 15:19:17 UTC
This is still an issue in 6.2.6 satellite with firefox-51.0-3.fc26.x86_64

Comment 3 Sebastian Gräßl 2017-05-11 06:42:22 UTC
There is now an upstream issue for this http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/19519

Comment 6 Bryan Kearney 2017-08-11 12:33:37 UTC
This bz has been moved to an upstream issue. We will no longer be tracking this in the downstream. When the upstream issue is fixed, the next release of Satellite will include the fix. If this is a concern, please reach out to Bryan Kearney or Rich Jerrido. Thank you.
