Hello everyone,

 

Apologies for the terse emails earlier, I was on my ride into work.

 

We missed an important part of the exercise. Who we were using for kinit?

 

I'm getting different responses when querying as admin vs. querying as a
User Administrator.

 

When I use user-find via the REST API as the admin I get the attributes.

 

When I use user-find via the REST API as a User Administrator I the
attributes are missing.

 

Sooo. the question is now: how do I give the User Administrator role
permission to read those attributes?

 

The massive checklist at
https://my.ipa.fqdn/ipa/ui/#/e/permission/details/System%3A%20Read%20User%20
Kerberos%20Login%20Attributes

 

Tick them, save,  and they're now visible.

 

We're tying to compare user information between our customer management
system and the directory. So we need to compare these attributes to see if a
user account needs to be updated. I'm using user_find rather than user_show
as user_find gives all the users as a big JSON object I can iterate over in
memory and a single REST API request, rather than a many (2000+) individual
rest queries. The single request takes less time that thousands of
individual requests, so a no-op run takes about 5 seconds, a run that has to
make a request for each user takes about 10 minutes.

 

While I may seem grumpy, I did appreciate your help. It did help me find the
solution.

 

Regards,

 

Aaron Hicks

I am on a bus :) your suggestion are things I have already tried. I know the
command line works.

 

My question is "what is the correct REST API query parameter that duplicates
the -all command line parameter?"

So, did you try to use exactly same JSON request as 'ipa -vvv user-find
--all' shows?

morning's answers. You seem to ignore suggestions we made -- at least,
you are not showing what's different for you.
