Would it be better to file this as a new bug, or reopen 4291?

Hi,

we are already aware of the problem and working on a fix (please see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1398600 and https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/6575).

HTH,
Flo.

The checkin says, "Installation in pure IPv6 environment failed
because pki-tomcat tried to use
IPv4 loopback. Configuring tomcat to use IPv6 loopback instead of IPv4
fixes this issue."  However it would seem that in a pure IPv4
environment, this is causing tomcat to fail to load.

Stranger, I did an install on a different VM with the CentOS 7 minimal
ISO, then installed ipa-server and enough things to get X11 and
Firefox, ran ipa-server-install and it worked fine.  I tested with
Firefox (and Safari) against my failing installation and it still
fails.  So there's something else different that's causing it to
break.  Will continue investigating, but if someone knows why the UI
would break this way it would be helpful to know where to look!

Just did it again with the same result.  Reinstalled the machine, then
did a 'yum install ipa-server python2-ipaserver httpd' which pulled in
version 4.4.0-14.el7_3.4 and a bunch of other packages.  Next was the
ipa-server-install as I used before, only without --mkhomedir this
time.  After entering the passwords for directory administrator and
the admin user, I then logged in to the web interface, immediately
clicked "add" and added a user 'foobar'.  When I clicked "add and
edit" and was brought to the user information page, it looks like this
at the bottom:

I then entered an employee number of '0001' just to give something to
save, and clicked save.  The screen now shows this (I've clicked the
drop-down on the manager field so the choices are visible):

Holding shift and clicking reload, the page now looks like this (the
employee number field is also blank again):

Since we do run a repackaged distribution here (Springdale Linux), I
just unpacked ipa-server-common from our repository with the above
version, and 
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/updates/x86_64/Packages/ipa-server-common-4.4.0-14.el7.centos.4.noarch.rpm,
and 'diff' found zero differences between them.  Unlikely, but I
wanted to rule out a packaging error causing the problem.

No, that should be all of the major changes; the puppet module that
installs things only puts the two plugin files in their respective
places.  The client part of the IPA module makes changes to have the
machine join the domain and whatnot, but those shouldn't affect the
webui.

I do modify the schema by adding some attribute types for Puppet,
namely puppetClass, parentNode, environment, puppetVar, and the object
class puppetClient.  That's basically right from one of the Puppet
webpages and also worked in the past - and is one of the things the
python plugin does, add the appropriate objectclass to host entries if
puppetVar is added to a host entry.

My steps to install:
* ipa-server-install --realm=<realm> --domain=<domain> --mkhomedir
--hostname=<hostname> --no-host-dns
* ldapmodify -ZZ -h localhost -x -D 'cn=Directory Manager' -W
  < paste puppet schema changes>
  < paste DN entry for uid=hostadder,cn=sysaccounts,cn=etc... - a
service account used by puppet for adding hosts to IPA >
* login to web UI
* * Change home directory base, default shell, default SELinux user
* * Add SELinux user map for staff/sysadmin users
* * Add "user adder" permission/privilege/role for users who will be
able to create stageusers

That's about as far as I got before I realized some of the plugin
pieces weren't working, and then fixed the python plugin followed by
working on the UI plugin and finding this problem.  I'll go wipe and
reinstall the system again and walk through the steps, but test the UI
first and in between to see if I can find which of the steps might be
causing things to hiccup.

Hello Steve,

I tried to reproduce what you described on the very same version of
ipa-server and I was not successful. Actually I was not used your back-end
plugin. I tried it with no plugin and then with your UI plugin and both
worked correctly. Did you do any other changes somewhere in your
installation?

I will try it again also with your Python plugin and we'll see.

And now I'm convinced this has nothing to do with my plugin and
instead is a bug somewhere in FreeIPA.

I removed the entirety of the "astrocustom" plugin that I wrote,
restarted httpd, and force reloaded the page in chrome.  I clicked to
add a new user, gave the basic information, and clicked "add and
edit".  The bottom of the page shows the "Employee information" on the
left side bottom, and the manager drop-down is empty.  I entered '1'
in the "employee type" field and clicked save, and now "Employee
Information" is on the right side directly under "Contact settings",
and the manager drop-down is populated with the list of UIDs on the
system.

When the UI is in the failed state, the "email address" field is also
blank, but when things switch to how they should be (after submitting
a change) it is populated with the email address in the record.  I
just tested by adding a telephone number to the record, and that also
made the contact information and employee information facets refresh
with the proper data.  Pressing shift-reload again makes all the
information disappear (including the telephone number I just entered).

This is with ipa-server-4.4.0-14.el7_3.4

Just tested again, and this is still baffling:

* Create a stage user with the right data, works fine, can be edited.
* Enable that user, and now the two fields ('manager' and
'employeeType') appear to have bogus data in the UI, and I cannot save
the page without changing them to something else.
* Once that user is saved, the "Employee Information" facet moves to
the right side of the page, and now shows not only the current data in
the manager drop down but also the other choices (uids).  Change the
value of manager and employeetype back to what they were previously
and it saves.
* An ldapsearch run when the user is first created (as the directory
manager), and after having two edits (one to change the values to
something else to let the webui save them, and one to change them back
to what they should be and were the first time) produce completely
identical results.
* The output of "ipa user-show <uid> --all --raw" is also identical at
those same steps.

So something, somewhere, is being saved in a way that prevents the
webui from displaying them properly, that gets fixed when those values
are manually changed via the webui.

Even more interesting...

I tried to modify one of the records that was not displaying properly
in the "active users" group, and sure enough the webui complained that
the "Requested By" (relabeled "manager") field was not filled in since
it was blank.  It also, however, complained that the "User tier"
(relabeled "employeetype") was incorrect, even though it showed the
label associated with the value 1.  I clicked the search drop-down for
manager, typed in my own uid, and even though everything had been
blank in the drop down before now my uid showed up.  I clicked on it,
and my uid was now in the manager field.  I then clicked the drop down
for employeetype, and chose one of the other options.  I was now able
to save the changes to the record.

Upon reloading the page, the "Employee Information" facet now shoed up
on the right side bottom, instead of the left side bottom where it was
appearing.  I was also now able to change the drop-down fields for
manager and employeetype to another value, and save them, and they
worked fine even filling in all the data that should have been there.
This almost seemed like the data being returned by the server was
flawed somehow, and confusing the webui, but once it was forced to
have the right data and re-saved it worked fine subsequently.

I looked at the output of "ipa user-show <uid> --all --raw" both
before and after making such changes on a user, and can detect no
difference between them.

In short, FreeIPA 4.2 -> 4.4 change was by splitting server and
client
side plugins into different paths (ipaserver/plugins and
ipaclient/plugins instead of being common in ipalib/plugins). The
client
code was also changed to always read metadata about API from the
server
side. This means the client can adopt to any server version that
supports API metadata.


Right, and I think that the most of the plugin I had belongs
server-side; in fact, that's where I migrated it to, and things work
fine.  I haven't tested if I can change those values with the cli, but
I'm less concerned about that at the moment.

In my sample external plugin you referenced above you can see that I
have client-side change that replaces an input string by a file
reference so that a file can supplied instead of typing the content
of
the file on the command line. This is one of most used patterns for
client side plugins.


In this case, my biggest problem is with the web UI.  The 'manager'
drop down (which I have renamed through the UI plugins to "Requested
By" to show what user requested and is responsible for this account)
works fine in the 'add/modify stageuser' context, but not at all in
the adduser/moduser context, and I can't seem to find out why.

I'll defer answer for this to our web UI wizards but they would need to
see your code to help, I'd guess.
