"When creating a new user there a text area for input a name of the primary group, but is not writable, and you have to use the selection button. So first you have to create the group and then the user.

It would be nice to have a way to input a group name (defaulting to the user name) that will create it automatically, as done by the CLI tools."

    the empty box is a bit misleading- perhaps a drop down box would be more appropriate.

    Workaround => Just write the same as uidNumber or a future gidnumber in the [Group Membership].

    The UserMgmt-plugin AddUser-wizard should be enhanced to add a "Add Group"-button from within the Dialog.
