Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-888) Improve editing of boolean values
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 07:35:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSTUDIO-888?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13589299#comment-13589299

Emmanuel Lecharny commented on DIRSTUDIO-888:
---------------------------------------------

Beside the fact that AD does an horrible job as a LDAP server, I do think we should soften
the user experience by transforming his/her input to something that AD can swallow. If he
user sets 'Yes', we should convert it to TRUE. That should not be a problem, imo.

> In inline editor won't accept lowercase strings for AD boolean values.  "true" and "false"
aren't accepted.  This was a bit unexpected so I started looking for other problems.  A more
relaxed approach could accept lower case values, or maybe even things like "t", "T", "f",
'F', "1", "0", "yes", "Y", "NO", ...
> A simple attribute editor for booleans would be a help to confirm/force a valid change.
 This becomes an issue if the change is not accepted for some reason, you aren't left wondering
if you entered something invalid.
