I have setup an LDAP user federation without problems, but now I want to enable the ALWAYS_READ_VALUE_FROM_LDAP option for some mappers.
The problem I’m facing is that the checkbox to enable this option is only displayed if “Import Users” is enabled, but I don’t want to import users.
I noticed, that the condition was added with commit cf5e2a1d20de6401a8bfafe6ea8c10a2f3dd9f5c and it’s not really clear why.
Currently I’m using a “hack”:
- Enable “Import Users”
- Enable ALWAYS_READ_VALUE_FROM_LDAP for my mappers
- Disable “Import Users”
So there are basically two questions:
- Was the condition added by accident or is there a good reason?
- Is it possible that my little “hack” breaks something that I’m currently not noticing?
Thanks in advance,
