Subject [jira] Created: (DIREVE-66) Automagically create ou=users under system
Date Sun, 31 Oct 2004 05:29:32 GMT
Automagically create ou=users under system 
-------------------------------------------

         Key: DIREVE-66
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIREVE-66
     Project: Directory Eve
        Type: Task
  Components: jndi-provider  
    Reporter: Alex Karasulu
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 


We need to start storing regular users as well as many other things like groups under the
ou=system context.  Let's start first by managing users under ou=users,ou=system.  This container
should automatically get created on the first db-creating bootstrap.  The admin user at uid=admin,ou=system
is very special.  This entry was not placed under ou=users,ou=system on purpose.  Other administrative
users can exist as ou=users subordinates however this user is not there for security reasons.
 First its clear what its for and secondly we don't want someone searching for it under ou=users.
 

If we really want to an alias can be created in uid=admin,ou=users,ou=system to point to uid=admin,ou=system.
 However I recommend against this.
