Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-1250) Console Realm Create new user gives confusing error message.
Date Wed, 30 Nov 2005 13:36:30 GMT
Console Realm Create new user gives confusing error message. 

         Key: GERONIMO-1250
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: Improvement
  Components: console  
 Environment: All
    Reporter: Rick McGuire
    Priority: Minor

The default "out-of-the-box" configuration uses the PropertiesLoginModule, which doesn't support
adding additional userids and groups.  However, the Console Realm portlet supports Create
New User and Create New Group as options.  If you try to create either a new group or user,
you get an error that the "ERROR:  User already exists".  The user does not already exist,
so the error doesn't really make sense.  This operation is failing because the PropertiesLoginModuleManager
is throwing an exception because it doesn't support updates, not because this is a duplicate
name.  The portlet is just catching all exceptions and reporting this as a duplicate name
error.  It would be nice to make this a little more granular.
