Description Florian Best univentionstaff 2018-01-23 14:52:21 CET
The documentation needs to be adjusted.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #45842 +++

Maintaining multiple variants of users is too complex, has bugs and can be simplified.

Therefore we should:

1. unify the UDM options "samba", "posix", "kerberos" and remove them: They are always activated.
2. split the "ldap_pwd" option into a new UDM object type e.g. users/ldap.
3. create a new UDM object type for an address book entry.

This is an API change of UDM and we have to write a migration script which modifies the LDAP in a way that UDM can handle the new user format.
