Samba 4 needs a similar feature, and such a feature would be very useful to all UI clients for the purpose you describe above - being able to show the fields editable by the user, and optionally those which are not. With Fedora DS, a field may not be editable for a number of reasons, ACI being just one of them. Other reasons would be the NO-USER-MODIFICATION field set in the schema, or the attribute value is virtual, and other reasons are possible as well.On Tue, Dec 05, 2006 at 11:41:51PM +0200, Ersin Er wrote:Hi all, I am trying to use the "Show Effective Rights" feature via the console, however I get nothing when I check the box. Just an "Entry Level Rights:" label is displayed at the bottom of the window but no value is displayed for neither the Entry nor attributes. Do I have to do some more configuration to make this work?I would guess that this is probably because you're not binding as the Directory Manager, but rather the admin user, who doesn't have permission to see the effective rights of other entries. Now I have a question, is it possible to allow FDS to show the effective rights of any entry in the server for any user (read access to the entry permitting)? The documentation here: http://directory.fedora.redhat.com/wiki/Get_Effective_Rights_Design#.22G.22_Permission suggests not. Are there plans for this to change? I ask as I am writing an application for editing entries in FDS, and would like to customise the display to only show those actions on an entry that the user can actually make. I do not want to store the authentication credentials of the Directory Manager within the application.
See https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-directory-devel/2006-November/msg00000.html for a discussion about this issue.
Cheers.Thanks. -- Ersin
