Subject Re: Need help configuring Archiva LDAP configuration with anonymous snapshot deploy
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:31:39 GMT
Hi Stefaan,

the cause seems to be plausible. That could explain, why the user was updated.
Regarding your questions, unfortunately I think I cannot provide a proper solution:

I know that there are certain parts in the code that use "guest" for the name of the guest
user and as I
know it cannot be fixed in a few lines of code.
You can try to keep the default guest user as 'guest' and change the filter for the ldap query
to exclude the 
guest user. But I'm not sure, if this works.

Regarding the 1000 results:
Do you have Active Directory as LDAP server running? As I know AD has a server limit for the
returned results
per query. The only workaround on the client would be to use paged ldap queries. But currently
paged queries are not implemented
by archiva, so there is no configuration entry to increase the result size.

So sorry, that I cannot provide more useful help. Feel free to create a JIRA ticket for both
(or a pull request).

When the user is not among those 1000, you can't go to the user to check the effective roles
of the user. Is this a hard maximum or is this a setting that can be changed? (applying the
LDAP group to a user not in this list still works)
