#1403 Config: Certificate Subject Base - Should not be Editable
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by rcritten.


It is no longer allowed to modify certificate subject base, as it was removed
as an option to config-mod awhile ago.

The UI still has it as an edit field. It should simply display the value.
Attempting to edit it results in bogus - ipa error 3003 "command 'config_mod'
takes no arguments".

- Log into web UI as admin
- Select "IPA Server" ---> "Configuration"
- Enter a new Certificate Subject Base and click Update.

For tickets #1403, #1404, and #1405, the list of fields can actually be automatically generated from the metadata (i.e. IPA.metadata.objects.config.takes_params) and we just need to exclude the ones that have a no_update flag.

However, for ticket #1406 since there's no attribute grouping defined in the metadata we will have to statically list the fields that belong to each sections.

So one solution that will work for all cases is to statically list the fields in the UI and maintain the list synchronized with the list of attributes defined in the config plugin.

According to Rob the ipacertificatesubjectbase should be shown as read-only.

Note that if we are going to put this back into the webUI, it needs an ACI, and that is a back end change. For now, the field is removed from the UI
