.The Directory Server Web Console does not provide an LDAP browser The web console enables administrators to manage and configure Directory Server 11 instances. However, it does not provide an integrated LDAP browser. To manage users and groups in Directory Server, use the `dsidm` utility. To display and modify directory entries, use a third-party LDAP browser or the OpenLDAP client utilities provided by the `openldap-clients` package.

Description Arpit Tolani 2018-11-28 10:17:25 UTC
Description of problem:
No way to add users in RHDS cockpit WebUI or CLI.

Only way to add users is creating a ldif file & adding using ldapadd/ldapmodify, This adds additional complexity for customers. 

With the objective of RHEL8 being user friendly it breaks the existing functionality of easy management of users/groups. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cockpit-389-ds-1.4.0.19-2.module+el8+1+36e60e1d.noarch
389-ds-base-1.4.0.19-2.module+el8+1+36e60e1d.x86_64
389-ds-base-libs-1.4.0.19-2.module+el8+1+36e60e1d.x86_64


How reproducible:
100%

Management did not want to add user/group management to the UI at this time.  There are other free third party LDAP browsers that can be used was the justification for not adding it.

I would like to add user/group functionality to the UI, but until management approves it my hands are tied.  If it would ever get added it wouldn't be until 8.1 or 8.2.

The dsidm CLI tool can add users and groups though...
