Description Petr Vobornik 2017-04-11 12:21:17 UTC
Cloned from upstream: https://pagure.io/freeipa/issue/6860

mod_lookup_identity checks one URL parameter during login using certificate and tries to get the user name provided during login from this parameter. Name of the URL parameter has to be configured in apache. Without configuration mod_lookup_identity does not check the URL and therefore login using certificates does not work correctly when one certificate is mapped to more users.

Proposed changes: 
IPA webui adds 'username' as URL parameter. This parameter name should be set in IPA httpd conf by default.

Is this related to the issue we saw when I was originally trying to verify bug #1430675?
