Is this really regression? IMO this never works.

Comment 18 Nikhil Dehadrai 2017-06-02 14:43:45 UTC
Ipa-server: ipa-server-4.5.0-13.el7.x86_64

Verified that when user creates "user" or "group" names within WebUI with more than 255 characters, correct error message is displayed :
"Invalid 'login': can be at most 255 characters"

Refer the screenshot at Comment#10 and Comment#12.

Thus marking the status of bug to "VERIFIED".
