Changing userPassword attribute on a plugin
by Francis Augusto Medeiros-Logeay
I am developing a plugin for FreeIPA (mostly to handle Postfix and virtual mailboxes/domains).
The thing is that I created an objectClass (postfixMailbox), where the user has the following attributes:
I don’t know what are the requirements for the user to be able to choose his own password by logging into FreeIPA’s gui.
What I did was to add the inetOrgPerson and inetUser objectClasses, just to see if the user would be allowed to log in for changing password-purposes. Still no go.
These users are in a totally different container (every virtual domain is a container).
I also am not sure if I want these users to be like a normal user, but at the same time I want to be able to change their password.
Any tips on how to achieve something like this, besides using a command-line plugin?
