Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Feature: Allow userClass attribute for Identity Management server host entries. Reason: Host entries did not contain a free-form attribute usable for host provisioning systems to tag or set class for a new host which could then be used by other functions of Identity Management like by Automatic Membership Assignment module. Result (if any): Administrators and provisioning systems may now take advantage of host entry userClass attribute.

Description Dmitri Pal 2013-04-23 10:48:09 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #955695 +++

This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

Allow a provisioning system to define a class/tag/template for the user/host entry it provisions so that IPA can automatically create group membership structure and in future do other automatic operations.

More details can be found on the design page. 


The first step will be to add `userClass` attributeType for hosts. The attribute will be added in a MAY list of current objectClass `ipaHost`.

A follow-up ticket was opened for second phase of this effort: #3588.
