Description Eric Sammons 2012-05-04 10:56:00 EDT
Description of problem:
When warden is set to ldap the New User option should not be visible as local users are not supported.  When a new user is created via the New User option from a LDAP configured instance that user will be unable to login due to the warden value being set to ldap.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure SAM (Katello) with auth type ldap.
2. Login with an administrative user
3. Navigate to the Administrator / Users tab
4. Note the New User option is available
5. Create new user
6. logout
7. Attempt to login with new user
Actual results:
Unable to login

Expected results:
Either support multiple wardens, r/w access to the ldap to create new users, or disable the new user link when warden is ldap.
Comment 1 Jordan OMara 2012-05-07 15:07:06 EDT
The new user option is still valid under LDAP. Adding a user w/ a valid LDAP username allows you to set additional roles for that user. 

It might be worthwhile to remove the ability to set a password for the user, since that password would never get used in LDAP mode
Comment 2 Jordan OMara 2012-05-08 17:10:26 EDT
Changing to RFE to disallow password setting on new user creation in LDAP auth mode
Comment 4 Jordan OMara 2012-06-19 08:33:08 EDT
merged https://github.com/Katello/katello/pull/213/

Admins are no longer prompted for email/password when creating LDAP users

However, if for some reason they disable LDAP mode after install (I'm not sure if this is supported or not) those users will not be able to login until a password is set by an admin
