Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1430) Return group names from the Active Directory
Date Fri, 02 Jun 2017 12:55:04 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1430:

Hi [~julienFL], do you know of any connectors in the MCF stable that would benefit from this?

The reason I ask is that generally we supply recommendations for which repository connectors
go with which authority connectors.  There's currently one exception to the rule that we ship
only authorities for which there are repository connectors, and that is the LDAP connector.
 And the LDAP connector is a sore point because (a) the needs are different for every user;
(b) it's essentially impossible to test for the same reason, (c) proper usage depends on code
that the ManifoldCF project doesn't have or maintain, and (d) it's impossible to reasonably
document too.  I'm therefore leery of adding more such additions to our maintained codebase.

Perhaps you can provide a detailed use scenario and/or a repository connector that uses this

> Currently the Active Directory authority connector only returns the ACLs SIDs but not
the names.
> Some users may want to work with names or both and thus SIDs are not enough.
> For those cases, it would be good if the authority connector have an option in his configuration
to also return the names in addition to the SIDs
