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


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", ...

 This becomes an issue if the change is not accepted for some reason, you aren't left wondering
if you entered something invalid.
