Description Sumit Bose 2016-06-14 13:25:41 UTC
Description of problem:
To fix #1311569 a new option ldap_group_external_member was added which should enable to IPA provider to read the external group members form the given attribute. Unfortunately ldap_group_external_member is not set by default and must be specified as 'ldap_group_external_member = ipaexternalmember' in sssd.conf to fix #1311569. It would be good to set it by default for the IPA provider.

Comment 3 Jakub Hrozek 2016-06-27 12:32:54 UTC
Since the bug was only in the 7.2.z backport of the patches, marking as MODIFIED. The correct code is already in te 7.3 rebase.
