#9421 ipa idp-add --provider silently ignores options like --scope
Closed: fixed a year ago by frenaud. Opened a year ago by cheimes.


When a provider is passed to ipa idp-add, the command silently ignores several parameters like --scope and --idp-user-id.

Steps to Reproduce

ipa idp-add example --provider=keycloak --base-url=https://idp.test --organization=org --scope=customscope --idp-user-id=customid --client-id=clientid

Actual behavior

Added Identity Provider server "example"
  Identity Provider server name: example
  Authorization URI: https://idp.test/realms/org/protocol/openid-connect/auth
  Device authorization URI: https://idp.test/realms/org/protocol/openid-connect/auth/device
  Token URI: https://idp.test/realms/org/protocol/openid-connect/token
  User info URI: https://idp.test/realms/org/protocol/openid-connect/userinfo
  Client identifier: clientid
  Scope: openid email
  External IdP user identifier attribute: email

Expected behavior

The command should either fail or (preferable) use the options for scope and external id.

  Scope: customscope
  External IdP user identifier attribute: customid



A possible solution is to go over individual options after self._convert_provider_to_endpoints() and override in attrs_list both ipaidpscope and ipaidpsub if they present in the options.

Does entry attrs implement the full dict interface? If yes, then you could use setdefault(key, value) method. The method only adds new keys, never overrides existing keys.

It does but we don't want to have everything from options and we exactly want to override existing keys which were set by the self._convert_provider_to_endpoints().

The following worked for me:

$ git diff
