RFE: Allow Cache to Expire Also When Offline
Last modified: 2009-10-24 08:37:14 EDT
Description of problem:
As per https://www.redhat.com/archives/freeipa-users/2009-June/msg00040.html it might in some cases be useful to allow cached entries to expire also when offline. For example, an organization may have a policy that all users must change they passwords twice a month - in that case it would be non-compliant that a user can keep using his password "forever" if offline.
Ok, here we have 2 separate issues.
one is the user/groups cache, another is the credentials cache (hashed, cached password).
What we need to "expire" are only credential caches.
It should be harmless to keep around user/group caches.
Since this is upstreamed at https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/60 I'll close this one.
