Hi RT-Extension-LDAPImport developers, I would like to report that the LDAP import process would overwrite existing users with already unique names with users with a completely different name when the emailaddress was empty. If the Email address is not there, then the existing name should be used to determine the mapping. I had to comment out the following lines to keep the users correct during the import process: --- LDAPImport.pm_ORIG 2016-05-18 13:13:36.902798407 -0500 +++ LDAPImport.pm_preDATEOPT 2016-06-01 15:59:36.845963080 -0500 @@ -906,9 +906,10 @@ my $user_obj = RT::User->new($RT::SystemUser); $user_obj->Load( $user->{Name} ); - unless ($user_obj->Id) { - $user_obj->LoadByEmail( $user->{EmailAddress} ); - } + # Do not try to load by EmailAddress if Name/uid does not exist - ktm 20160517 + #unless ($user_obj->Id) { + # $user_obj->LoadByEmail( $user->{EmailAddress} ); + #} return $user_obj; } This ticket looks like a duplicate of the existing ticket #105246. Another part of this report is an enhancement request to the rtldapimport script to allow it to take a timestamp as an option that will be applied to the filter condition to enable a simple cron job to keep the RT database in sync with the LDAP directory. Here is the adjusted usage for the changes that I have made to allow that to work: ./rtldapimport: [--debug] [--import] [--help] --help This usage statement. --debug Enable debugging. --import Do the import. --no-users Skip users. --no-groups Skip groups. --timestamp t Add modifyTimestamp-based filter to LDAPFilter The arg t is a number followed by a period letter: (s)econds, (m)inutes, (h)ours and (d)ays or z, in which case it is a full Zulu LDAP timestamp and will be used instead: YYYYMMDDHHMMSSz. It adds the additional LDAP filter criterion: Show quoted text
modifyTimestamp>=(currenttime - t) for (smhd) modifyTimestamp>=yyyymmddhhmmssZ for (z)
I have attached patches for rtldapimport and and make them available with no restrictions. Regards, Ken
