Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The edit user fields were active in LDAP mode Attempts to edit the user resulted in the creations of a local user, which was not supported. A check is now performed to see if Conductor is in LDAP mode and, if so, disables the edit user fields.

Description Aaron Weitekamp 2012-09-24 11:10:34 EDT
Description of problem:
LDAP mode is read-only, meaning updating the LDAP server from the CFCE client is not supported. Therefore the edit user fields should be disabled when in LDAP mode.

Related discussion: BZ-859511

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@qeblade41 share]# rpm -qa |grep aeolus

Steps to Reproduce:
1. config CFCE with LDAP server
2. nav to edit a user
3. note edit fields

Actual results: 
Note: Changing a username results in another local user being created. This is not a supported configuration.

Expected results:
Edit user fields should be grey'd out or hidden. Max running instances is the only valid field when in LDAP mode.

User is not allowed to edit in LDAP mode .
All Text fields are disabled .
However Save User Button is still active and if i click on it says "user Updated"
I suggest remove the edit button itself or Disable the "SaveUSer" button also
Comment 10 Tzu-Mainn Chen 2012-10-11 08:15:53 EDT
The reason the edit button is still there is because it's possible to edit the maximum running instances in both database and ldap mode.
