Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 969451
"Enable this account" does nothing if account didn't have password.
Last modified: 2015-01-13 07:58:26 EST
Description of problem:
In control-center -> users is password change dialog, which has "Action" combo box. If user with no password is disabled, "Enable this account" doesn't do anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Settings -> Users
2. Create new user.
3. Click on password option of this user
4. Select "Enable this user" in Action combo box
5. Click "Change".
"Password" goes from ***** back to disabled after a few seconds. This also works if previously created user with no password is disabled, not only on new accounts.
"Enable this account" on user who previously didn't have any password should probably set no password to this account, which means it would do the same thing as "Log in without password".
This options is also pretty poorly named, see bug 969449.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The UI seems to have changed in Fedora 21, now it looks different and the described problem is not there.
