RFE: manage system accounts (bind accounts) in the FreeIPA CLI and web UI
Last modified: 2016-12-14 15:24:09 EST
Description of problem:
Look at these howtos:
They both describe system account creation in the manual way, which means that the step is needlesly error-prone, and any subsequent operation (user modification, password change, ..., user deletion) needs to be done using low-level ldap tools as well.
FreeIPA should have these options integrated in the CLI and web UI to prevent errors and behave consistently.
The integration of management of these accounts would make more RFEs self-evident, such as:
* configuration of other means of authentication for these bind accounts such as using client certificates
* make it possible to delegate these users management to some user/group
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Right, this is a reasonable RFE. I will link it with a current upstream ticket that was filed in the past for this.
+1 for this.
