Attempting to update LDAP user's password fails with a blank error message
Last modified: 2011-10-31 11:45:51 EDT
Description of problem:
If an administrative user attempts to update the password of an LDAP user (which should not be possible) the result is an error message "Operation failed. An error occurred" but the detailed message is blank. Digging into the server log file you can see:
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: You cannot set a password for an LDAP user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login as rhqadmin
2. Select Administration -> Users
3. Select a user who has "LDAP Login?" set to "Yes
4. Enter a new password in the Password field
5. Enter the same new password in the Verify Password field
6. Click Save
Message is displayed "Operation failed. An error occurred" with empty details
Password field should not be editable/enabled
-- or --
Message is displayed "Operation failed. You cannot set a password for an LDAP user."
functionally this is working, but you can't update LDAP password through JON. the error message could be better.
