YaST support only SSSD for LDAP based authentication

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


We should remove support for nss_ldap and pam_ldap configuration from the YaST ldap-client module (note: this is not a request to remove nss_ldap and pam_ldap from the distribution) and only support SSSD for LDAP based users authentication.
The nss_ldap and pam_ldap packages should still be part of future distribution to still allow manual setup.

When updating an nss-/pam_ldap based system from an older release it should stay with nss-/pam_ldap. Upon first startup of yast2-ldap-client it might offer a migration to sssd.

User benefit:

Focussing on a single implementation for LDAP authentication allows us to provide a cleaner UI and should reduce the complexity of the YaST ldap-client module considerably. Making it easier to use and maintain.

Joe, Matthias, this is in fact about removing existing functionality. How comon are the non-SSSD set-ups?

They can be migrated.

Jiri, please, go ahead and implement this feature.

Well, current yast2-ldap-client offers UI only for SSSD. If nss is detected, it will be rewritten to SSSD on exit.

So I think this is what was requested. Ralf, could you confirm? Than we could close the feature.

Yes. This can be closed as done already.
