Description Gerhardus Geldenhuis 2010-08-09 10:56:06 UTC
Description of problem:
In the Management Console it displays:
Security level: domestic

Since this has been the default/only security level for quite a few years and only add potential confusion it would be better to just remove it entirely from the UI.

The email thread contains the discussion for removal:

This patch removes the "Security level" field from the server info panels in Console.  One will no longer see this field.

Internally, the Console code still has a security level concept that is used for enabling ciphers.  It is not worth changing this as the code is widespread and exposed via public API.  It is possible that it is used by other projects, such as Dogtag.

Checked into CVS (HEAD).  Thanks to Noriko for her review!

Steps to verify.
1. Start and login Console.
2. On Redhat Management Console, expand FQDN, then Server Group.
   Then choose Directory Server (ID).
3. On the right pane, if there is no "Security level" field, the bug is verified.

Followed comment#5, no "Security level" field found, hence marking as VERIFIED.
